Court orders INEC to continue Dino Melaye’s recall process

The Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered INEC to continue the process of recalling the suit filed by Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye.

Senator Melaye had approached the court, challenging the validity of the process of recalling him by his constituents.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, in his judgment, stated 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.

The judge said his order must be carried out within two weeks before an amended time-table for the recall would be made.
