Lokoja — Senator Dino Melaye (APC Kogi West), on Monday said that plot by some forces in Kogi state government in cahoots with officials at INEC to stampede him out of the Senate against the will of his constituents would fail.
Dino, while reacting in a statement to the ruling of the Federal High Court on his recall, said, "He who is with me from above is greater than all of them put together. I will not stop speaking truth to authority. Kogi State government must pay workers salaries and pay Pensioners.
"My great people of Kogi West Senatorial district of Kogi state, in the face of obvious persecution and appealable judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja today, let not your heart be troubled.
"Lies will never overtake or conquer truth. The presence of the Kogi State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Court today over a matter that Kogi State is not joined as a party shows the clear collaborative efforts of INEC and Kogi State government.
"We cannot all sleep facing one side of the bed. We shall overcome these temporary shenanigans in the long run.
"We will neither sleep nor slumber on this. I use this oppotunity to thank my dear constituents for their abiding love for and confidence shown towards me".
