Some other respondents said the recall will be a wasteful venture because of the processes involved in carrying it out.

Last weekend, Senator Melaye said those asking for his recall are not members of his constituency.

He made the statement on Sunday, June 4, when he appeared on Politics Today, a political programme on Channels Television.

On Friday, June 9, Senator Melaye shared the photo of a newspaper advert in which a vote of confidence was passed on him by the Kogi state APC exco and 16 out of 21 local government party chairmen.
