See Dino Melaye’s Reaction As Tribunal Sacks Him As Senator!
Kogi State National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal, has sacked Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial district. This was after Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC) approach the tribunal over INEC’s declaration of Melaye (PDP) as the winner of the February election.
Adeyemi challenged INEC’s declaration on three grounds of irregularities, over voting and non compliance with the electoral acts. The three man panel led by Justice A. O. Chijioke in a unanimous judgment on Friday accepted Adeyemi’s ground and order for reelection into the senatorial axis.
Reacting to tribunal judgement, Dino Melaye, wrote on Twitter:
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.
