Senator Dino Melaye, has disclosed that some of his relations were included in the list of people who signed for his recall.
According to the Senator, the names of some of his uncles and his brother appeared in the list.
Sen. Melaye, who represents Kogi West Senatorial District in the National House of Assembly made the revelation in an interview with the Sun Newspaper saying;
Yahaya Bello did not vote for me, he is not a member of my constituency, he has no electoral value as far as my seat in the Senate is concerned. So he has no power to recall me.
“So he sat down with his appointees, and got INEC data, then directly transferred names from INEC register to the recall list.
“Do you know that my blood brother’s name is on that list? Do you know that two of my uncles from Takete who are immediate brothers to my mother, their names are on that list?
“And we have also discovered that there were a lot of ghosts, a lot of dead people, their names are on the list.
“In some instances, the names of some people on the list supersede the required number of eligible voters and registered voters in the INEC register
“And I’m telling you on good authority that he’s the worst governor in the history of Kogi State.
“And because of my agitation for the welfare of the workers and pensioners of Kogi State, he orchestrated an assassination attempt on me the first time, it failed. He organized the second attempt; it failed to the glory of God.”
