BREAKING: INEC Suspends Melaye’s Recall

The Independent National Electoral Commission has said it will stop the process of recalling the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Mr. Dino Melaye, in compliance with a court directive.

The electoral body on Thursday said the decision was reached at its weekly meeting held in Abuja.

INEC had on Wednesday 12 June 2017 received six bags, which contained the signatures of 52.3 percent of the electorates from the zone and other petitions, requesting for the recall of Melaye.

The lawmaker had sued INEC alleging that the petition for his recall included forged signatures of dead persons.

An Abuja Federal High Court on 6th July 2017 ordered INEC and Melaye to maintain the “status quo” until a ruling his passed on Melaye’s suit.
