Nigeria: INEC reveals actual amount spent on Dino Melaye’s recall not N100billion
The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mr. Mahmood Yakubu, said on Friday that N100m was dedicated to the failure of Kogi-West’s legislative, Senator Dino Melaye, recall attempt,
The president of the INEC disclosed this while answering questions asked at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.
Yakubu said the figure was nowhere near the N100bn being bandied by the Peoples Democratic Party.
” A recall exercise is just like conducting a Senatorial election, adding that Kogi-West which Melaye represents, has 552 polling units and seven local governments.
“Ad hoc staff were deployed in all the polling units.” Yakubu added.
