    Federal High Court Orders INEC To Proceed With Recall Process Of Sen. Melaye

    A Federal High Court sitting 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, SaharaReporters reports.

    Justice Nnamdi Dimgba had ordered that the Independent National Electoral Commission “shall proceed with the recall process”.

    It is understood that the judgment effectively ended 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.

    Nonetheless, 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, the news site concludes.
