The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has revealed that only N100 million was spent on the failed attempt to recall Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West).
The electoral commission chairman made this known on Friday when speaking at a press conference.
He said the figure was nowhere near the N100 billion as alleged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Yakubu said a recall exercise is just like conducting a Senatorial election, adding that Kogi-West which Melaye represents, has 552 polling units and seven local governments.
He disclosed that ad hoc staff were deployed in all the polling units.
