Recall: Melaye Reacts To Court’s Verdict

The Senator representing Kogi West district has responded to the verdict of the Abuja High Court terminating his application to dismiss recall petition against him.

Earlier today, the court asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to proceed with the recall petition process of the controversial lawmaker.

Melaye alleged INEC to be collaborative efforts with Governor Yahya Bello-led Kogi state Government to get him out of the Red chambers forcefully but expressed optimism to emerge victorious at the end.

“My great people of Kogi West Senatorial District of Kogi state, in the face of obvious persecution and appealable judgement of the Federal High CourtbAbuja today, let not your heart be troubled. Lies will never overtake or conquer truth.

“The presence of the Kogi State Attonery General and Commissioner for Justice in court today over a matter that Kogi State is not joined as a party shows the clear collaborative efforts of INEC and Kogi State Government. However, these combined efforts of Governor Yahaya Bello, INEC, top Federal Government officials and top security agents to harangue and stampede me out of the Senate against the will of Kogi West constituents will fail woefully. He who is with me from above is greather than all of them put together.

“I will not stop speaking truth to authority. Kogi State Government must pay workers’ salaries and pay pensioners. We cannot all sleep facing one side of the bed. We shall overcome this temporary Shenanigan in the long run.

We will neither sleep nor slumber on this. I use this opportunity to thank my dear constituents for their abiding love for and confidence shown towards me. God bless you all. Imole de, okunkun parada!”, Melaye established.
