Senator Dino Melaye has reportedly begged his colleagues to rally round him from the recall process at the Senate plenary on Tuesday, July 4, 2107.

In a recent report by Premium Times, the Kogi West Senator urged his colleagues to save him from being recalled by his constituents by citing Order 14 of the Senate Rule and pleaded with his colleagues to act.

While pleading with other Senators, Melaye restated that his recall was masterminded by his state governor, Yahaya Bello.

Melaye's appeal to the Senate is coming as the Independent National Electoral Commission unveiled a timetable and modalities for the exercise at his Kogi West Senatorial District.
