Senator Dino Melaye, who faces a looming recall process following the ruling by a Federal High Court Abuja on Thursday, has urged his constituents in Kogi West not to be troubled “in the face of obvious persecution and appealable judgement”.
Mr. Melaye stated this in a statement he sent to CHECKPOINTCHARLEY on Monday.
Reacting to the ruling, the senator alleged that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, Independent National Electoral Commission, top Federal Government officials, and top security officers were behind his travails.
He said, “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.
“I will not stop speaking truth to authority. Kogi State Government must pay workers’ salaries and pay pensioners. We cannot all sleep facing one side of the bed. We shall overcome this temporary Shenanigan in the long run. We will neither sleep nor slumber on this. I use this opportunity to thank my dear constituents for their abiding love for and confidence shown towards me. God bless you all. Imole de, okunkun parada!”
