Following the ongoing recall drama facing the senator, a man, named Tope Ayeni, has sworn an affidavit claiming he was given N20,000 by the APC chairman in Ayetoro Gbede/Duagbe ward 1 in the state, to convince people to sign the recall register for Dino Melaye or forge their signatures.
Tope in the affidavit claimed that the chairman asked him to give N500 to anyone he can convince to sign the register. A copy of the affidavit was shared by Dino Melaye above.
Last week, INEC released a statement saying it has received over 180,000 signatures from constituents of Kogi West Senatorial district requesting for Dino to be recalled from the Senate.
Dino Melaye has, however, come out to say that some of the people that signed the recall register were dead people. He maintains that the state governor, Yahaya Bello, is behind the plot to recall him from the Senate.
