188,588 of the 360,098 registered voters have endorsed their signature for move to recall Senator Dino Malaye from the National Assembly.
As those seeking the remove the Kogi-West Senator now constitutes 52.3 per cent, there might just be much to what the Pro-Dino recall group could do than just the usual voice most agitators are known for.
One won’t be surprised to see Pro-Dino’s group discrediting the recall effort, as they have described it as ‘comedy’.
Dissociating themselves from the call, the Pro-Dino group known as Coalition of Enlightened Voters said they are Yagba people consisting of Yagba West, Yagba East and Mopamuro local governments.
Announcing the result as well as addressing All Progressives Congress from the district, Mr. Pius Kolawole, the Special Adviser Political Affairs to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state, said the was carried out on June 17.
Kolawole also commended voters from the Kogi West district for coming out en mass to exercise their right as contained in the 1999 constitution section 69.
His words: “We are using the same method we used to vote in Dino Melaye in 2015 to return him home.”
The result which was collated by Returning Officer, Adamu Yusuf, has it that 188,588 out of 360,098 total registered voters moved for Melaye’s removal participate.
The breakdown from the seven local government which constitute Kogi West Senatorial district as follows and moved for his recall are:
- Yagba East: 18,374 out of 35,331
- Mopa-Muro: 9,186 out of 18,356
