Melaye’s Recall Attempt From The Senate, Fails Woefully.

The long drama over the attempt to recall the Senator representing Kogi West took a turn towards an end on Saturday with the verification exercise flopping.

Results announced by INEC at the end of the exercise showed that only 18,742 signatories to the recall petition were verified out of the 189,870 signatories on the petition.

The verified signatories fell well below the requirement of the law that 50 percent and one of the signatories must be verified before the recall process can continue.

Consequently, the embattled Senator Melaye who was in the hospital owing to the drama that followed his arrest has survived the recall attempt.
