  • We have nothing to do with your recall Kogi replies Melaye

Following the submission of the petition, INEC fixed August 19 for a verification exercise - to determine if Melaye's constituents really wanted him out of the upper legislative chamber.

Dimgba's ruling effectively puts an end to Justice John Tsoho's earlier ex-parte order which directed all parties involved to maintain status quo.

The court, now presided over by Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, thereafter ruled that Melaye be handed the recall petition, schedule of signatures attached to the petition and the list of persons who want the senator recalled, within two weeks.

And it is just wonderful for these guys to play at the very top of amateur golf, it's great for their career. Morikawa teamed with Xiong, who's from Canyon Lake, to win foursomes matches Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Consequently, the Judge held that the period would only continue to run from the date of latest ruling - Monday.

Melaye had filled a suit asking INEC to halt the recall process claiming that the voters signatures from the constituency were from dead and non-existent people.

Justice Dimgba dismissed the suit on the grounds that it lacked merit, adding that it was hasty and premature since Melaye failed to exhaust all internal mechanism provided by the 1999 constitution before rushing to court.

It was also just days after the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana , Prince William's mother. The Duchess of Cambridge was therefore most certainly hospitalized before her holidays in Scotland.

Countering the petition filed by the APC senator, the presiding judge stated that his Kogi-West constituents were not mandated to afford him fair hearing before sending their petition to INEC.

Justice Dimgba also admitted that although the Constitution did not expressly provide that the INEC must serve the affected legislator with the petition and the accompanying documents, it was required in the spirit of fair hearing so that the legislator could be equipped to fight the recall.

The Judgealso dismissed the argument that the the number signatures ‎did not meet the threshold stipulated in the Constitution.
