BREAKING: Failed Recall Attempt: Dino Melaye Speaks From Hospital Bed

Senator Dino Melaye of Kogi West senatorial district has on Sunday spoken from his hospital bed in Abuja, in reaction to the failed attempt to recall him from the Senate on Saturday.

Melaye in his reaction thanked his constituents for rejecting attempts to recall him, adding that evil will never triumph.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared in the early hours of Sunday that the recall exercise on Saturday had failed after electorate overwhelmingly sat at home.

At least 51 percent of voters are required to verify their signatures for the recall process to move to the next stage, but only five percent of registered voters turned out.

Mr Melaye has been receiving treatment in the National Hospital since Tuesday, after he reportedly jumped out of a moving police vehicle and sustained injuries.

“Thank you my people. God bless you all. Thank you for the confidence reposed on me. I will not let you down. I will always stand by the truth and the people at all times. God bless Kogi West,” Mr Melaye said in a Twitter update.

“Every lie has an expiry date. Forces of evil will never triumph over forces of light. God is with us,” he added.

The senator’s victory has been widely seen as a major setback and humiliation for Governor Yahaya Bello, whom Mr Melaye had repeatedly accused of being behind his recall and other political attacks in recent months.
