The Independent National Electoral Commission has received signatures from the electorates in Kogi West Senatorial District, asking for the recall of Senator Dino Melaye from the Senate.
Six bags, which contained the signatures of 52.3 percent of the electorates from the zone and other petitions, were submitted to the Commission in Abuja on Wednesday.
The law requires 50 per cent of voters in an area sign to recall a lawmaker.
Melaye has since condemned the move, saying it would fail and was being sponsored by Kogi Governor, Yahya Bello.
