The Independent National Electoral Commission has released the timetable and schedule of activities for the recall of the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, with the process set to start on Tuesday, March 27, 2018.

In a release which contained the timetable and schedule of activities for the recall process and signed on Friday by Mrs. Augusta Ogakwu, INEC Secretary, the schedule of activities is expected to commence with the posting of the notice of verification at the commission’s office in Lokoja, Kogi State and end with the declaration of the outcome of the verification on April 29, 2018.

INEC said it had proceeded with the move pursuant to a judgment by the Court of Appeal, Abuja, delivered on March 16, 2018.

The statement said, “Pursuant to the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, delivered on March 16, 2018, the Independent National Electoral Commission hereby issues this timetable and schedule of activities for the recall of the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Kogi State.

“The process will begin on March 27, 2018, with the posting of the notice of verification at the commission’s local government area office in Lokoja, Kogi State and end with the declaration of the outcome of the verification on April 29, 2018.”

The commission stressed that it was exercising its powers as conferred on it by “Sections 69 and 110 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), Section 116 of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) and of all other powers enabling it in that behalf.”

Also, according to the statement, April 4 is set as the last day for submission of application by interested observers, while April 20 is set as the last day for the submission of the names of verification agents for the member sought to be recalled and the petitioners.

Furthermore, there is expected to be a stakeholders’ meeting on April 25 at INEC’s state office; conduct of verification on April 28 in all polling units in the constituency and declaration of the outcome of verification on April 29 at the commission’s local government area office in Lokoja.

INEC Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, had last week said the commission would release a fresh timetable and schedule of activities for the recall of Melaye.

Some constituents from Kogi West, where the senator hails from, had last year moved to recall him by registering their names and submitting photocopies of their Permanent Voter Cards.
