The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has condemned the attempts by some politicians to ruin the recall process of the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
NANS national President, Comrade Aruna Kadiri, addressing journalists in Abuja, said INEC had commenced the process of recall of the Senator following petition from Melaye’s constituents asking to recall him.
According to him, it was wrong for the National Assembly, particularly the Senate and some politicians to attempt to ruin the process and undermine the will of the people that elected the Senator.
Kadiri also said that it was the constitutional right of the people to recall any of their representatives where such person is not performing and that it was also within the legitimate mandate of INEC to follow through the due process upon receipt of the petition signed by the required number of people.
He said: “NANS has therefore, commenced mass mobilisation of our students and Nigerians to be watchful to ensure that the plot by certain political jobbers who have failed our country and democracy does not get a foothold in their attempt to hijack the 2019 general elections in order to perpetuate themselves in power.”
