N100m Spent On Failed Dino Melaye Recall – INEC

Senator Dino Melaye

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.
