A group, Bunu Youth Forum (BYF), comprising kinsmen of the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, at the weekend washed their hands off attempts to recall Senator Dino Melaye even as they condemned the action.
The Youth Forum said the process was an attempt by selfish individuals to discredit the good work that the Senator is doing in representing the constituency at the senate.
Leader of the group, Hon. Kingsley Mokikan disclosed that even Nigerians outside the state have attested to the fact that Melaye is gradually becoming a household name in the country because of his vibrant contributions in the National Assembly thereby making Dino a pride to the entire good people of Kogi State.
BYF described the recall process as the most unfortunate thing to ever happen in Okunland regretting that some people have allowed themselves to be used in such an unholy attempt which is not in the interest of the people of the district.
BYF said, “We have waited for them to summit their petition to INEC and thank God they have done just that. We are waiting for the next step from INEC as we are prepared to witness against this fraudulent recall process.
“As far as we are concerned as Bunu Youth, we have not at any time appended our signatures to any documents regarding the recall of Senator Dino Melaye.
“We in Bunu don’t destroy the house that we use our hand to build. We voted for senator Dino and we have no reason whatsoever to wanting to recall him”.
“We are ready to testify in any law court under oath that we have not signed any document and we are ready to challenge the process in court if in anyway during INEC verification we find our names in the satanic register as signatories to the said document”.
The group said “It is only a man that hates the people of the western senatorial district that will seek for the recall of Senator Melaye.
“We have not had it this good in the history of the Nigerian senate as far as the district is concerned. Dino is doing us proud.
“His legislative prowess has no match. Presently he has the highest number of Bills and motions and all these are people oriented.
“His problems started when he stood up to challenge the non-payment of salaries and pensions as well as the closure of all the higher institutions of learning in the state which no one has been able to question the governor and his aides for this.
“He asked that despite the fact that the governor has collected huge sum of money within a year and half, up to N100billion and more, yet he could not pay workers’ salaries.
“As far as we are concerned, Senator Dino is being condemned today for speaking the truth and we as Bunu Youth are ready to stand by him through this trouble waters” the youth group added,
