The Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigerian yesterday described the recall of Senator Dino Melaye from the National Assembly as an exercise in futility, adding that it is a waste of time.

According to the senate, the independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is aware of the process of recall which must be followed.

The senate also noted that the process followed by INEC so far regarding the senator’s recall was not in line with the laid down procedures in the constitution.

Meanwhile, the Kogi State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has yesterday sued INEC to court, asking the court to stop the electoral body from proceeding with Melaye’s recall.
