Senator Dino Melaye has spoken of alleged harassment he and other members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kogi State faced in the run up to the elections.
Speaking on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday, the Senator representing Kogi West, said Gov. Yahaya Bello prevented PDP leaders from entering the state and succeeded in disenfranchising some of them including a former governor, Idris Wada.
Melaye went on to credit his exercising his own franchise to celestial power.
His word, “Some senators here and members of the House of Representatives were stopped from coming into Lokoja. I had to consult some celestial powers and that was how I got into Kogi State and my village through celestial powers.
“This is not about PDP or APC. This is about Nigeria. Where is NPN? where is UPN? All these things will come and go. The Senate cannot look the other way while these things are ongoing. Lecturers and Youth Corps members were killed during the elections.”
