The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it will release a revised timetable for the recall of Mr. Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial zone.
This follows Monday Court ruling which gave the commission the nod to continue with process.
With the legal hurdle removed, Mallam Mohammed Haruna, National Commissioner & Member, Information and Voter Education Committee (IVEC) Tuesday in a statement stated that INEC will release the revised timetable on Monday.
INEC had commenced the recall process of Melaye following a petition by a group from his senatorial zone asking for his recall. But the senator went to Court to halt the process.
The terse statement reads: “It will be recalled that in obedience to an interlocutory order of the Federal High Court, Abuja given on 6th July, 2017 the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) stayed all actions relating to the petition to recall Senator Dino Melaye as the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District.
“Judgment in the suit was delivered yesterday, 11th September, 2017. All legal hurdles have now been cleared and the recall process can now proceed as envisaged by the Constitution, the Electoral Act and the extant INEC guidelines and regulations.
“Accordingly, and in compliance with the orders of the Court, the Commission will release a revised timetable and schedule of activities on Monday 18th September 2017.”
