Many people will go to jail over my recall bid– Dino Melaye

The lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district in the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye, has warned that many people will end up behind bars over the bid to recall him from the upper legislative chamber.

Melaye stated this while answering questions from Seun Okinbaloye, anchor of Politics Today, a daily programme on Channels Television.

Asked about the reports that files of signatures of voters in his district had been submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Melaye said: “I continue to laugh at their efforts which I know is in futility. The whole exercise is a comedy of errors.

“Nobody should take it seriously; the whole thing is shrouded in money politics and cannot stand.

“We have discovered names of dead people on the list and a handwriting with similar signatures for several people on the petition, the discrepancies are too much and it’s a total fraud.

“I promise that many people will go to jail for forgery.”

On Wednesday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) received the signatures of those endorsing  Dino Melaye’s recall process.
