The Independent Service Delivery Monitoring Group (ISDMG) has insisted that the recall process of Sen Dino Melaye must continue, accusing the senator of trying to frustrate the process.

Recall that the senator representing Kogi west had allegedly refused to accept Petition for Recall served on him by INEC on the ground that the 90 days stipulated by the 1999 Constitution had elapsed.

But the ISDMG in a statement signed by its executive director, Dr Chima Amadi challenged Melaye to go and face his constituents.

"We must not allow Senator Dino to ridicule our Constitution and our court. The beauty of democracy is that it allows elected representatives to renew their mandates through legally guaranteed elections or recall process.

"The Senator it was who headed to court while time was counting down, alleging that the process enunciated by INEC abridged his fundamental right to fair hearing. He was heard by our court while the countdown on time was paused; he cannot turn around now and complain about the effluxion of time.

"Our court deprecated the behaviour of folks like Senator Dino in Governor of Lagos State & Ors v Ojukwu & Anor who seek to supplant the Rule of Law with their own Marshal command, using our court as a sword and as a shield," Amadi stated.
