INEC receives letter for recall of Kano Rep Abubakar Kuki

*To set time table for the process

Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] has confirmed receipt of letter for recall of Honourable Abubakar Galadima Kuki, Member representing Bebeji Constituency of Kano state.

INEC disclosed this in a statement issued on Monday, 14th August.

According to the electoral body, the petition was received on Friday from Mr. Kuki’s constituents. INEC added that in accordance with its guidelines for recall, it has acknowledged the receipt of the petition and has written to inform Mr. Kuki of the presentation of the petition. INEC equally stated that a time table and schedule of activities in respect of the petition will soon be released.

Senator Dino Melaye was the first Nigerian legislator that the recall rule was effectively used for the first time upon.

Now that Nigerians are waking up to the recall rule, one hopes it will ginger the legislators that they have a whip with which they can be shaped into line.
