Senator Melaye has alleged that the Kogi State governor was behind the ongoing move by members of his constituency to recall him.
Sen Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi) has said that Gov Yahaya Bello has released a some of N200m to see to his recall by his constituents.
Melaye alleged that 30 supporters of his who refused to be part of the move were arrested on the order of the governor.
“Quote me, Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has released N200 million for each of the seven local government areas in my senatorial district to facilitate my recall from the Senate,” Melaye alleged.
Melaye also noted that the ongoing move by the electorate in his constituency to recall him from the Senate will fail because his achievements in the Senate were enormous.
The senator later led his supporters on a peaceful march round Kabba town to further show his popularity.
The electorate in the seven local government areas that make up Kogi West Senatorial District on Saturday besieged polling units in the area to endorse the request for the recall of the senator.
