The Independent National Electoral Commission has received signatures from the electorate in Kogi West Senatorial District, asking for the recall of Senator Dino Melaye from the Senate.
Six bags, which contained the signatures of 52.3 per cent of the electorate from the senatorial district and other petitions, were submitted to INEC in Abuja on Wednesday.
Kogi West, which Melaye represents in the Senate, has seven local governments.
Signatures and petitions from each of the local government areas were packaged in each of the bags, which were tagged according to the names of the local governments.
The local governments and the percentage of voters who signed the recall petition showed that Yagba West had the highest number of voters asking Melaye to return home from the Senate.
