The Abuja division of the Court of Appeal has ordered the continuation of the recall process of Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West senatorial District of Kogi state.

The court in its judgement in the appeal ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to commence the recall process of the senator.

A federal high court in Abuja had in September given INEC the nod to continue the process but the Senator Melaye was unsatisfied with ruling and lodged an appeal at the Court of appeal.

But, the two-man member panel led by Justice Mohammed Mustapha ruled that there is no limit to complete the recall process as provided in section 69 (b) of the 1999 constitution.

It also ruled that the federal high court that adjudicated the case lacked jurisdiction to and ought not to have entertained the case in the first place.
