Did Senator Dino Melaye offend dead men in Kogi West Senatorial District?

If you remember vividly, he had said dead men were in the list of signatories pushing his recall. It is now established that the dead now tabernacles with the leaving.

His recall that started with so much hype ended like a moonlight play, with the reality coming to light.

Time has a way of resolving issues. 

The Senator, who is recuperating on a hospital bed at the National Hospital, Abuja, will be smiling even thought the aches of the Black Panther stunt he tried to pull on Tuesday are still there.

He had survived one of the toughest trials that rained last week. 

The move to recall the man who jumped from a police vehicle to avert arrest crumbled on Saturday before our very eyes like the 'cookie' of James Hadley Chase. 

Low turnout of electorates for signature verification hammered death's nail through the process.

Nigerians now know the truth about the recall move.

People may have thought the poor turnout was a sign of sympathy for the troubled man or adherence to the request made by the Peoples Democratic Party for electorates to shun the exercise.


Senator Melaye's party, the All Progressives Congress, which has been more on the quiet side all through the process, is now coming out to name persons behind the process. 

On Sunday, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi, Haddy Ametuo, said “some ghosts" initiated the recall process against Senator Melaye.

Ametuo blamed ghosts in a statement issued in Lokoja on Sunday on the botched recall process.

He expressed delight that the efforts had come to a premature end through the collective will of the people of Kogi West Senatorial District.

"Melaye, the only senator our party has in Kogi State, won with 94.66%, leaving the remaining 5.34% to the petitioners.

"The messages are very clear; that Senator Melaye is the most popular senator ever produced by Kogi West,” the statement read.

According to the chairman, this is a sign of what to expect in the 2019 general elections.

"No amount of financial inducement and coercion will change the will of the people of Kogi State in future elections,’’  he said.

The APC Chairman commended the high level of neutrality and transparency displayed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC ) and other individuals and agencies throughout the exercise.

“It gives us high optimism that future elections will be very free and fair. INEC therefore deserves commendations for the job well done,” he said.

Ametuo called on the petitioners and Melaye as well as his followers to embrace peace and heed the voice of God "because the voice of the people is the voice of God".
