The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Monday released the time table for the recall of the senator representing Kogi West in the Nigerian Senate, Senator Dino Melaye.

The decision of INEC is coming amidst efforts by Melaye’s lawyer to stop the commission from kick starting the process.

INEC had last week acknowledged receiving a petition from Mr. Melaye’s constituents asking to recall him. About 52 per cent of registered voters in the lawmaker’s constituency are believed to have signed the petition.

The commission had also written to the senator intimating him formally of its receipt of the petition and that it would kickstart the process on July 3.
