Gov Bello, INEC, top govt officials want me out of Senate – Dino Melaye
The lawmaker representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye, has accused Governor Yahaya Bello, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), top Federal Government officials and security agencies of an alleged plot to harangue and stampede him out of the Senate against the will of his constituent.
Senator Melaye stated this while reacting to a Federal High Court ruling in Abuja, dismissing his application challenging the moves by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to effect his recall.
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba on Monday held that all the complaints made by Melaye lack merit and deserve to be dismissed.
The lawmaker in his statement on Monday obtained by DAILY POST wondered the presence of the Kogi State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Court over a matter that Kogi State is not joined as a party.
He vowed never to stop speaking the truth which according to him is part of his sins against those who want him out of the National Assembly.
The Statement reads in part, “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 Govt 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 Govt must pay workers salaries and pay Pensioners.We can not all sleep facing one side of the bed.We shall overcome this temporary shenanigans in the long run.
“We will neither sleep nor slumber on this.I use this oppotunity to thank my dear constituents for their abiding love for and confidence shown towards me. God bless you all. Imole Dey! Okunkun parada!”
