The Coalition for Truth and Justice has criticized Senator Dino Melaye over his recent call for the resignation of Governor Yahaya Bello.

Senator Melaye and some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State recently called on Governor Bello to resign over the accusation that he registered twice for the Permanent Voter Card (PVC).

Melaye had claimed that the people of Kogi state and the party were dissociating themselves from the act and called on Bello to resign immediately or risk impeachment.

Coordinator of the group, Timothy Charles however, described the call for Bello’s resignation as laughable and unnecessary.

He noted that it was unfortunate that some ‘mischievous people’ who parade themselves as APC leaders have chosen to feast on irrelevant issues.

His words: “Some eager Nigerians are yet to understand the ‎part that has to do with transfer of voting centers but have gone ahead to register again when they find themselves in new locations as was applicable under the old system.

“This was apparently what happened to Bello hence the circumstance is devoid of any untoward intention.

“But these few Kogi APC leaders prefer to expose their ignorance by acting beyond their limits and assuming a position that is way beyond their powers.

“One way of gauging the seriousness of an enterprise is to look at the profile of those championing it and that is the crux of the matter.

“One of the prominent leaders of the group is Dino Melaye,‎ a man who has continued to bring shame and ridicule to Kogi state by his alarmingly illogical comments on the floor of the Senate and elsewhere.

“This is a man who is struggling with an identity crisis that even his real name is not known as it keeps changing and his credentials are so fake that they cannot withstand the slightest scrutiny as seen recently.

“To put the records straight, Governor Bel‎lo is discharging his duties responsibly as governor and cannot resign because he has not done anything unconstitutional to warrant that.

“The likes of Melaye should be ignored as they have nothing concrete to offer and are only clutching at straws to survive the political turbulence charging at them,” he added.
