The Federal High Court, Abuja, has threatened to strike out a suit filed by Senator Dino Melaye, if he or his counsel fails to appear on the next adjourned date.
Melaye filed a suit before Justice Nnamdi Dimgba seeking an interpretation of the court’s judgment of September 11, 2017.
The court had ruled that INEC acted within its constitutional rights in commencing the process for Melaye’s recall.
On Wednesday, Counsel to INEC, A.Y. Abubakar notified the court that Melaye’s counsel was not in court and no reason was given for his absence.
Abubakar, who held the brief of Yunus Usman (SAN), told the court that it appeared that the senator was no longer interested in the case.
Respondung, Justice Dimgba said that he would give one more adjournment in the matter.
“I will give one more adjournment and if they are not in court, I will strike it out.”
He also instructed Abubakar to write to Melaye’s counsel informing him of the new adjourned date – March 19.
