The electoral body said only 5.34 percent of signatures of his constituents were verified in Saturday’s exercise.
The figure falls short of the requirement that would have led to a referendum to recall the senator.
The verification exercise which took place in 552 polling units in seven local governments under Kogi West senatorial district, was scheduled to begin between 8 am to 2 pm but did not commence in most of the centres until 11am and recorded low turn out.
