Move To Get Dino Melaye Out of Senate Hits Rock As INEC Suspends Recall

Concerted efforts made by his constituents to get Senator Dino Melaye out of the National Assembly has suffered a major setback as the Independent National Electoral Commission has suspended the recall process on Thursday.

In a statement, Adedeji Soyebi, national commissioner of the Commission, disclosed that the decision is in line with a court ruling.

The federal high court, Abuja had last week asked INEC and Melaye to maintain “status quo” pending the determination of a suit filed by Melaye to challenge the process.

However, Soyebi said INEC would appeal the ruling to halt the process of recalling Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west.
