Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC on Tuesday dropped loads of documents for the recall of Senator Dino Melaye at his office door.
The officials, upon arriving the National Assembly to notify the embattled lawmaker on the petition, had to wait while he was in the Senate chamber
It was gathered that the Melaye’s office was under lock and key, while his aides were not around to receive the notice.
Melaye had on Monday said the 90-day deadline set for INEC by Section 69 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) has expired.
The lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial district alleged that it was only after several attempts at his life had failed that “they” resorted to this sham process of recall.
“I celebrate the obituary of the ‘Made in Taiwan’ recall exercise, while sympathising with the induced petitioners, who will obviously face charges of forgery and other criminal charges before a court of law very, very soon.”
The lawmaker said this at a press conference in Abuja on Monday.
