Embattled Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West) has warned that there would be dire repercussions if the bid to recall him from the Upper Chamber succeeds.
Melaye made the statement on Wednesday while a guest on the Channels Television programme, Politics Today with Seun Okinbaloye.
Replying to the host’s question regarding his thoughts on the reports that files of signatures of voters in his district have 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 petition, the discrepancies are too much and it’s a total fraud.
“And I promise that many people will go to jail for forgery.”
INEC, on Wednesday, received the signatures of 52.3% of the registered voters in the Senator’s constituency. This is 2.3% more than the requisite percentage needed before INEC can begin the recall process.
