The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday directed its members in Kogi State to vote against the recall of Senator Dino Melaye during Saturday’s verification of petitioners’ signatures.
The PDP said in a statement in Lokoja it was not in support of Melaye’s recall from the beginning.
The party’s Director of Research and Documentation, Mr. Dickson Achadu, who signed the statement, described the attempt to recall Melaye as a product of internal crisis in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
However, the party said it was in support of the senator’s agitation for good welfare for workers and the downtrodden, adding that the state had been made a laughing stock.
It urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies to guard against being used in the plan to forcefully deny Kogi West quality representation at the Senate.
