Controversial Kogi west senator Mr Dino Melaye who has been in the news for quite sometime now over an ongoing democratic process in his constituency has been awarded the “Senator of the Year” for the second time, at the Annual Senate Press Corps Awards/Dinner in Abuja.
The dinner which featured a lot of Nigerian dignitaries and celebrities was quite colorful and the award was presented to him by the FCT Minister, Mohammed Bello Musa in person.
An Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Monday dismissed an application filed by senator, Dino Melaye, against his planned recall.
The court had ordered a suspension of the recall process, following Mr. Melaye’s application, but directed on Tuesday that the process should continue, after deciding that the application lacked merit.
The presiding judge, Nnamdi Dimgba, ruled that the electorate whose petition resulted in the recall had a right to request the removal of their senator from office since they are the ones who “gifted the position of the said office” to Mr. Melaye.
