Court orders INEC to continue recall process of Dino Melaye

The Federal Court in Abuja has ordered the continuation of the recall process of recalling the suit filed against Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye by INEC.

Meanwhile, Senator Dino Melaye had challenged the authenticity of the recall process by his constituents and had approached the Court for an order.

However, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba in his judgment gave an order that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, should go ahead with recall process of Senator Dino Melaye subject to the service of the petition, the full list, and signatures of persons in support of the recall process.

The judgment effectively terminated the earlier ex parte order made by another judge of the federal high court in Abuja, Justice John Tsoho, on July 6, 2017, directing parties to maintain status quo.
