Nigeria - Kogi State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Tuesday, approached the Federal High Court in Abuja, praying it to halt the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from activating process for the recall of Senator Dino Melaye.
Other plaintiffs joined in the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/601/2017, are Alhaji ‎Haddy Ametuo, Hon. Shaibu Osune, S.T Adejo, Comrade Yahaya Ade Ismail, Chief Gbenga Ashagun, Ahovi S. Ibrahim, Ghali ND Usman, Isa Abubakar, I. Molemodile, Abubakr M. Adamu and Daniel Sekpe.

INEC had announced that it would kick-start the recall process on July 10, having earlier received petition and signatures that were collated by Melaye’s constituents.
The electoral body had vowed to go ahead with the recall process, saying that only a competent court of law could stop it from proceeding with the recall process.
Specifically, Kogi APC chieftains in the suit prayed the court to, “declare that the recall process initiated vide a purported petition against their sponsored member of the Senate by some of his constituents, pursuant to Section 69 of the 1999 Constitution, is illegal, unlawful and of no effect whatsoever for being contrary and in contravention to the rules of natural justice and constitutionally guaranteed right to fair hearing under section 36 of the 1999 constitution.”
The plaintiffs sought for a court ‎injunction restraining INEC from commencing the process of recall of Melaye who they sponsored into the Senate.
Meantime, no date has been fixed for hearing of the suit which is yet to be assigned to any judge.
