Court rejects Senator Dino Melaye's recall process

Senator Dino Melaye misinterpreted justice John Tsoho's judgement over his recall case and then took to social media on thursday to announced his victory. He claimed that the judge had ordered INEC to stop his recall process. 

The judge had actually rejected his motion for a temporary injunction restraining INEC from proceeding with the recall process until the determination of suit challenging his recall

The judge sitting at the federal high court, Abuja ordered parties in the case to “maintain status quo pending the hearing of the motion on notice, but Dino took it to be freedom.

Dino in one of his suits before the court, said the recall process was based on political malice which was initiated by his political enemies.

The Senator denied any wrongdoing and claimed he was being targeted for standing up for the oppressed in Kogi State and the many workers who have not been paid salaries by the state government.

He however begged the court to declare the petition submitted to INEC Chairman, Prof. Yakubu Mahmood, as “illegal, unlawful, wrongful, unconstitutional, invalid, null, void and of no effect whatsoever.”
