Melaye Rejects Judgment Ordering INEC To Restart His Recall
Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly has vowed to appeal the judgment delivered by the Appeal Court ordering INEC to restart his recall.
The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja had on Friday in a unanimous decision ruled that the recall process initiated by INEC to recall Senator Melaye from the Senate be restarted.
The process was halted when Melaye filed an appeal against the Federal High Court Abuja, which ordered the recall to go on.
The appellate court held that the 90 days stipulated by the Constitution within which a recall process could take place “has no time limitation”, stating that the lower court ought not to have even heard Melaye’s suit ab initio.
Reacting to the Appeal Court judgment, Melaye urged his supporters not to be worried as he would soon be vindicated.
In his tweet after the judgment, Melaye said: “The judgement by the appeal court is nothing to be bothered about. I urge my supporters to be relaxed as though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death yet I fear no evil. Every lie has an expiry date. We are Appealing the judgement immediately.”
