Senator Dino Melaiye's Recall: APC Abandoned Gov Yahaya BELLO To Embrace Dino Melaiye

By Usman Okai Austin

Tragically noted, inside the Lugard House in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital where the lone Senator Dino Melaiye's project may have suffered its final and bloodless abortion, sits a lonely governor. Shamefully confronting him is the glaring uncertainty of his unpopular and ill advised project of recalling the most popular Senator in Nigeria whose contributions to nation building has attracted several vindicate awards and notable among them is the
Best Senator of The Year 2016 Meritorious Award in a sharp contrast to Kogi's state Governor who is rated as one of the worst Governors in Nigeria.

The peculiarities of Governor Yahaya Bello ascension to power in the Kogi state political scene tells a story too strong to wish away from the pages of Nigerian political and judicial History. Governor BELLO enjoyed high ovations at the resumption in lugard house from both his kinsmen and some leaders of the APC but at the moments his ratings and popularity is seriously dwindling into oblivion. Contrary to the believe in some quarters that he is a God ordained leader due to the circumstances that surrounded his emergence but never do they know that even the devil can some time present himself like God.

The period leading up to signature verification appears to show clear indicators that all might not be well with the Governor as millions of Naira looted from the state resources has gone down the lane because he is lacking popular back up as expected. The most baffling shocker came from the top ranking men of the Okun kingdom under the auspices of Okun Development Initiative (ODI) who openly declared their support for their cherished senator, Dino. To further escalate the scenario, was the unethical development that unsettled Lugard House, as the Chief of staff threatened to sacks the entire Kogi west local government Caretaker committee though the embattled CTC from Kogi west. Edward Onoja vowed to do more when it comes to signatures verification, but the the last straw which breaks the camel's back came from the APC state Chairman and other top ranking elected APC state executives, who unanimously passed a vote of confidence on Senator Dino Melaiye as if that is not enough, the party executives openly displayed a colorful advert in a National Daily pledging their unalloyed loyalty to Senator Dino Melaiye in the advert duly signed by the state Chairman Alhaji Haddy Ametuo state Secretary Bar.S.T Adejo, the Deputy Chairman and the three Zonal Chairman it reads:

"We are proud of Distinguished Senator Dino Melaiye "
this is contrary to the working of a party in the state , constitutionally the governor of a state is supposed to be the leader of the party that produces him in the state, the state APC also labeled the recall process which is ongoing as dead and described the agent as forces of darkness.

Senator Dino Melaiye recall appears to have reached its hottest shameful peak as the governor seems to have seen the signs on the wall. Despite the lingering court cases there are evidences that more individuals and groups may approach court of competent jurisdiction due to the illegality that engulfed the entire process as many signatures of both dead and alive were forged. Many political are of the opinion that the trending development that the analysts may incarcerate many fallacious actors in the shameful debacle fueled by the acclaimed "White Lion".

As the second round of the recall process approach, it has become less difficult to predict as those whose signatures were forged are deeply angry but they are ready to provide vital evidences to trash the entire exercise.
In a similar development, a woman of Yagba West extraction, Mrs Margaret Ojo Said:
"I was asked to bring the photocopy of my PVC for the purpose of collecting agricultural loan from the state government I never know it was all about recalling the best Senator of the year 2016".

The issue is now a national affair. We all know it will end in favor of Dino.
