Correct me if I'm wrong but a recall would be followed by the replacement of the deposed senator wouldn't it?

It would be criminal to prevent the constituency from having representation.

A replacement can only happen when the recall process is completed.If the process is not completed Dino will remain a senator

Once INEC withdraws his certificate of return, the police, DSS and other security agencies have the legal backing to declare him persona non grata in and around the National Assembly complex.

And with his recent altercation with the police, they'll gleefully carry out the action to the letter.

Don't forget that all the security forces manning the National Assembly report to the Executive.

INEC will also Elect a new senator to that position and issue a certificate of return to the newly elected senator. The new senator will equally present himself at the National Assembly to be sworn in as the senator for Kogi West brandishing his INEC issued certificate for all to see.

There is no where in the constitution that says the Senate has to ratify the recall process. As per the snippet posted above, the Senate President will show him the door. Either he is shown or not, does not invalidate the recall.

Either ways, it's a lose lose for Dino. What makes it more complicated for him is the fact that Saraki is reluctant to declare open war with Buhari. Saraki is being careful and it's his foot soldiers like Dino that will bite the dust.

As it is, Dino is on his own! Till all the legal battles that may arise from the recall, and the others he is presently facing are over, he'll be effectively kept away from the National Assembly. And in essence making whoever he has issues with to have achieved their objectives.


No new election will hold unless the recall process is completed as laid out in the constitution

Mr. Man, Senate President's role in the recall process is just ceremonial. Before the INEC issues the Senate President Certificate of Recall, it must have withdrawn the Certificate of return.

Why do you think Dino is running to courts to stop the process? angry
There is nothing ceremonial about a constitutional process.The senate president must "give effect" when he is presented with " satisfactory evidence" before the recall process is completed

he will simply put it in his drawer tell everyone that he will to it at the right time and may be do it on the last plenary of the 8th senate, this is because the constitution did not stipulate a timeframe for the recall

He can be sued to perform his duty. The court can order him to do it immediately

You mean they will boycott the SP part? Your sentiment is unpresidented. You know that the whole exercise is a fraud. Yes you know.

Today it's Dino, power doesn't last forever it may be you tomorrow.

Or you think you can't become a senator? May be a kind of rubber stamp senator.

Let us condemn evil. This is democracy.

Senate President To Perform Last Function In Recall Process Of A Senator

See for yourself, this is culled from vanguard newspaper

By Clifford Ndujihe



https://www.vanguardngr.com/2016/07/10-steps-recall-senator-nigeria/

With the above if Saraki just decide not to perform the last function the whole exercise of Dinos recall is in futility.

Not an issue where a sitting Senate President is not well disposed to a recall. That duty is not discretionary but mandatory. It is akin to the presentation of a certificate of return to the Senate President by a newly elected Senator who may not be a member of the same political party with him. The Senate President has a mandatory duty to act on it.

dinachi:

You are wrong! The constitution says the moment Senate President 'RECIEVES' the recall letter from INEC Chairman Dino ceases to be a Senator.
Which Constitution are you reading, is it the one from Chad republic? I am asking because a community reading of section 68 & 69 is to the effect that the Senate must be satisfied that due process was followed and the Senate President will give effect to INEC certificate.

stop beating about.

Inec has the power to issue or withdraw certificate of return for public office holder.
Saraki part is just a formality process that cannot alter or stop the process.
Just like chief judge of the federation declining to swear in a democratic elected president with certificate of return .it will never stop the president from ascending to the seat .
To cut the short, saraki part is ceremonial it cannot stop or alter the process.
Once inec completes her part Dino certificate is withdrawn. The security officers re notified .Dino can never be allowed to enter the nass complex until another person is elected by the constituency

Rule of law is for the poor.
Re: 10 Steps To Recall A Senator In Nigeria: Senate President Performs Last Function by HAH: 9:33am On Apr 28
There are about 370,000 registered voters in kogiwest as such about 180,000 voters must have signed the recall register for inec to act

So today inec will verify at least 90000 signatures to make a referendum in 90 days.

The question is will they succeed with all this bottlenecks

I think the whole Dino recall brouhaha will end up as an academic exercise
