BREAKING: Court Dismisses Melaye’s Suit, Asks INEC To Continue Recall Process

Ade Adesomoju , Abuja

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday dismissed the suit by Kogi West Senator , Dino Melaye , challenging the validity of the process of recalling him by his constituents.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba , in his judgment, ordered that the Independent National Electoral Commission “ shall proceed with 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.

But the Justice Dimgba , to whom the case was reassigned , ordered that the process shall only proceed with the recall process , subject to the service of the petition , the full list and signatures of persons in support of the recall process.
