Senate President Bukola Saraki visits Dino Melaye at the hospital

Hours after Senator Dino Melaye put himself in the way of harm by jumping off a moving police van, Senate President Bukola Saraki led a group of senators to visit their injured colleague.

Reports have it that Senator Melaye is currently being treated at the National Hospital and contrary to other reports that he was handcuffed to his bed, Senator Shehu Sani shared via Facebook that he is only “on drips”.

While some of the delegation were refused access to the Intensive Care Unit, Senator Shehu Sani wrote, “I was among the few Senators allowed into the intensive care Unit of the National Hospital to see distinguish Senator Dino.He was not on handcuffs but on drips.He was barely able to speak and his neck was bandaged.I’m not a medical Doctor or a Nurse to conclude whether that means ‘stable or not’. That is the truth.”


But Senator Melaye’s troubles are not near over…

While he recuperates at the hospital, Senator Dino Melaye may have gotten word that the Independent National Electoral Commission has commenced his recall process.

The process, which began in 2017 with petitions from his constituents to remove him from the senatorial seat he currently holds, is now continuing with the verification of his constituents.

Kogi’s resident electoral commissioner said, Professor James Apam said, “The verification exercise, which is the first in the line of activities to be carried out in a recall process, will be done on 28th April, 2018 in 560 polling units in the Kogi West Senatorial District”.

We are itching to know how this one unfolds!
