The war between the Kogi state governor Yahaya Bello and the Senator representing Kogi west senatorial district, Sen. Dino Melaye, has unarguably gathered momentum and thus raised lots of political arguments, turbulent and social quagmire in Kogi state.
However, Dino has called his recent 52.3% constituency voters endorsement recall a ‘comedy of error’ and ‘a recall fraud’ sponsored by Yahaya Bello, that will soon end.
According to him ” It can not succeed. It is a hoax and absolute comedy of errors. I’m laughing at the stupidity of Kogi state government.
“Many appointees will go to jail for forgery. Even dead peoples name on the recall register, he said. Sen. Dino proving the recall results to be unsubstantial wrote, “A governor who does not know what double registration is may not as well know the procedure for recall. Every lie has an expiry date, he said.
In furtherance to the recall results, Dino said, ” This comedy of error will soon end. No shaking at all. This won’t solve the problem of not paying salaries for over 15 months. “No retreat no surrender. Truth is my only defense.
Moreover, Dino threatening does he called ‘Yahaya boys’ opined, “Jail call for Yahaya boys. Gov. Bello is embarrassing literacy. The speed with which GYB got over 180,000 signatures deserve the attention of Guinness Book of Records. When less than 112,000 voted in 2015” he finally said via his tweeter handle.
Reacting to the fight between the duo, @Olisafincy said, “Fighting Dino Melaye is like fighting the son of God. The matter will take its position which is under the carpet”.
Similarly, @Bilapeter said, “GYB should channel his energy to ensuring that all state owned institutions he closed down are reopened and not recall”.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to react on the submission made to it on Wednesday. Details to unfold as we wait for INEC’s reaction.
