INEC Reacts To Moves To Recall Senator Dino Melaye(See What They Said)


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it is not aware of any moves to recall Sen. Dino Malaye, representing Kogi West
Senatorial District.

INEC Director of Voter Education and Publicity (VEP), Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, said this in an
interview on Thursday in Abuja.
Explaining the processes involved in recalling
an elected lawmaker, Osaze-Uzzi said that a petition signed by at least 50 per cent of the
registered voters in that senatorial district must
be submitted to the commission.

“It is only when the petitioners get 50 per cent of the registered voters that
they can submit a recall petition to the commission.

“That is when INEC can commence the recall process, but we have not received
such petition.’’

Osaze-Uzzi said that upon the receipt of such petition, the commission would also embark on a verification, to ascertain whether the recall
petition was actually signed by registered voters in that senatorial district.
