Tribunal Nullifies Dino Melaye’s Senatorial Elections

An election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja has sacked Dino Melaye as the representative of the Kogi West senatorial district in the Senate.

Melaye beat his closest challenger, Smart Adeyemi, and other candidates in the election that was conducted on February 23, for a second term in the upper legislative chamber.

Adeyemi filed a petition before the tribunal to contest the result, alleging that the process was plagued with irregularities and dis-organisations.

The tribunal agreed with him and annulled the election in a ruling delivered on Friday, August 23.

Reacting to this news, Senator Dino Melaye Tweeted;

On Tribunal judgement. No cause 4 alarm at all. Even if it went my way they will still go to the Appeal Court. Our mandate can not be taken. We will get judgment at the Appeal Court. There will be fresh election in Kogi West bc I will be Governor. For my Senate mandate no shaking”
