Senate Dares INEC on Sen. Dino Melaye Recall

Despite INEC releasing a scheduled time table to cover the process of recalling Sen. Dino Melaye, his colleagues are solidly behind him as they have challenged the electoral body over the irregularities. According to the Senate President and his best friend, Sen. Bukola Saraki.......
“As they say, 10 years is no joke in leadership, the Deputy Senate President has explained the processes. So, let the process speak for itself.

”I really don’t know why a lot of efforts are being wasted that should have gone into more important things. Eventually, it must come back here for us to decide whether it is satisfactory or not.”
This is what deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, said about the process....

“I am wondering why we are dissipating energy on this matter and wasting precious legislative time on a matter we should not.

”What is happening in Kogi in respect of Senator Dino Melaye, as far as this constitution is concerned, is an exercise in futility. They are just wasting precious time because the constitution is clear on what should happen.

”It is possible that the Attorney- General of Kogi State has not advised them properly. If he had done that, I am sure they would have applied their time to more meaningful ventures in Kogi State.”

“When they are done with that, they go back to Section 68, which states that the President of the Senate receives from the chairman of INEC the recall of the member. They would also present evidence satisfactory to the House or the Senate.

”So they need to come back here and convince each and every one of us that they have done the correct thing. Unless they do that, they cannot even give effect to it. So why are we wasting our time? Let us move on and allow them to waste their time.
