INEC Suspends Melaye’s Recall process

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has suspended the process of recalling  Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West senatorial district.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) held its regular weekly meeting today and considered the order given by the Federal High Court, Abuja dated 6th July 2017 directing the “parties to maintain the status quo till the determination of the plaintiff’s motion on notice,” in respect of the suit filed by Senator Dino Melaye, seeking orders of injunction against the Commission, to stop it from acting on the petition by the registered voters of Kogi West Senatorial district.

“As a responsible, law-abiding institution, INEC will comply with the order,” the commission said in a statement by its National Commissioner & Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Prince Adedeji Soyebi.

The court subsequently adjourned hearing of the motion on notice to September 29, 2017.
