A Nigerian man has taken to Facebook to lament after he spotted his late daughter’s name on the petition to recall Kogi senator, Dino Melaye.
He shared the petition list and wrote;
“I had a bad experience today, the evil men behind Dino recall open up my old wounds today, my late daughter miss Thomas faithThat dead on July 18 2016 at FMC lokoja her name was among the petitionals her name is in number 729 on that evil list, her voters card is still with me, how do they got the VIN number? is it her ghost that came to sign with out the voters card? Whosoever did this will see hell”
He continued by posting a photo of her voters card as proof.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced that the recall election for Dino Melaye as the lawmaker for Kogi West Senatorial District failed.
Only five per cent of the electorate turned out in an exercise that required 51 per cent majority to succeed. Of the 189,870 signatories, only 18,742 were verified after Saturday’s exercise.
The result showed that people of Kogi West Senatorial District have decided to keep Dino Melaye as their senator despite his controversial style and ongoing political ordeal which includes criminal investigation by the police.
