Following Monday’s judgment by a Federal High Court, Abuja, asking the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to proceed with the recall process as initiated by his constituency, Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West Senatorial District, has raised the alarm that the Federal Government, Kogi State Governor and INEC desperately want to get him out of the way.
Senator Melaye described the judgment as part of plans to get at him in connivance with a top security Officers, he did not name.
Melaye alleged that Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello, the Federal Government, INEC and top security officers were behind his travails.
He said: “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.
“The presence of the Kogi State Attonery 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 greather 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. God bless you all. Imole de, okunkun parada!”
