Dino Melaye, senator of representing Kogi west, has said he will survive the attempt to recall him from the red chamber.Melaye said this on Monday in reaction to the ruling of the federal high court, Abuja which ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to continue his recall process.
The senator urged his constituents not to be troubled by the “obvious persecution and appealable judgement” of the court.He said the presence of the Kogi state attorney-general in court shows that there is a collaboration between INEC, Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi; and top federal government officials to “stampede” him out of the senate.
“My great people of Kogi west senatorial district of Kogi state, in the face of obvious persecution and appealable judgement of the federal high court Abuja today, let not your heart be troubled. Lies will never overtake or conquer truth,” his statement read.
“The presence of the Kogi state attorney-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 greater 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.”
