Plans To Recall Senator Melaye Begins In Kogi Central


Protesters from Kogi State, under
the umbrella of the Kogi Youths
for Good Governance, stormed
the National Assembly,
yesterday, demanding for the
immediate suspension of Senator Dino Melaye,
representing Kogi West
Senatorial Zone. His suspension, the protesters
believed, would facilitate
Melaye’s recall. The leader of the protesters,
Leke Richard, said that the
processes of recalling Melaye
have started in his zone, over
what he termed as the “abuse of
Tinubu’s wife in the Senate.” The protesters, who besieged
the National Assembly’s gate in
the early hours of yesterday,
carried placards and banners
with different inscriptions, such
as: ”Dino Melaye is a disgrace to us,” “Dino Melaye will be
recalled” and “Women are our
mothers, learn to respect them.”
Richard said that Melaye
benefited from the widespread
support enjoyed by President Muhammadu Buhari to emerge
as senator under the APC
An officer from the office of the
Sargent-At-Arms at the National
Assembly, Dennis Maji, who received a letter from the
protesters, promised to deliver it
to the appropriate quarters.
