Melaye’s Recall: INEC Releases Timetable Next Week | The Precision

The Independent National Electoral Commission has commenced
the recall process for the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial
District in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye.


An INEC National Commissioner and member of the Information
and Voter Education Committee, Mallam Mohammed Haruna, said in a
statement on Tuesday that
the commission would release a revised timetable and schedule of
activities on September 18, 2017 in compliance with the orders of the
Haruna said with the ruling of the court on the issue of
the recall process against Melaye on September 11, 2017, all the legal
impediments to the recall process against the senator had been removed
for the recall process to resume.
INEC  had suspended the recall process against Melaye after
it was served with an order granted by Justice John Tsoho of the
Federal High Court, Abuja which directed the commission to maintain the
status quo pending the determination of the suit that Melaye filed to
challenge his recall process.
Meanwhile, the Kogi State Government has distanced itself from claims by Melaye that it was behind his recall process.
