Dino Recall: Kogi APC Says It Is Totally Behind Senator Dino Melaye

As the Yahaya Bello-sponsored recall process of Senator Dino Melaye continues to be unmasked as a sham,the leadership of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Kogi State has declared its total support for Senator Melaye’s continuous stay in the Senate.

The Kogi APC made this known in a letter entitled “We Are Proud of Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye”,addressed to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara, national chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and members of the National Assembly, and signed by the state chairman of the APC, Alhaji Hardy Ametuo; deputy chairman, Hon. Shaibu Osune; state secretary of the party, Barr. S.T. Adejo, zonal vice chairman (Kogi West) Chief Gbenga Asagun, zonal vice chairman (Kogi East) Comm. Isah Daniel, and zonal vice chairman (Kogi Central) Hon. Ahovi S. Ibrahim.

According to the party leaders, the recall process is being engineered by “agents of darkness”, who are perturbed by Senator Melaye’s fight for justice,accountability and development of Kogi State;

“Apparently, the purported recall process embarked upon by agents of darkness is a disservice to Kogi state and Kogi West senatorial district.”

They described Senator Dino Melaye as an invaluable member of the Senate,whose motions and sponsored bills have been aimed at making Nigeria better.The party leaders said that instead of a recall process being initiated,the people should be thanking Senator Melaye for the impact he has made, and his contributions towards the growth of the party at the national level.

According to them;

“We convey our unflinching support to Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West) for his courage for standing against injustice, inhumanity and oppression. We stand by our party policies and Nigerian Constitution which provides that no person shall be subjected to torture, inhuman or degrading treatment. Our dear Senator, we salute your courage.”

Since the recall process began,several groups including key stakeholders and leaders from Kogi State have spoken out against it, and pledged their total support for Senator Melaye. This therefore raises the question of the people who want Senator Melaye recalled.
