Results of verification exercise for Melaye’s call. The verification exercise for the embattled senator representing Kogi West senatorial district Senator Dino Melaye host yesterday across the state. We conducted the survey on how voters turned out for Melaye’s recall verification exercise yesterday and the results of verification exercise for Melaye’s recall. The process was marred by low voters turn out for the verification of their signatures.

If the voters failed to make the appropriate 50 percentage required to recall Melaye the whole exercises will be defeated. As the thing turned up yesterday, only 18,742 signatories to the recall petition were verified out of the 189,870 signatories on the petition.
