BREAKING: Court Sacks Dino Melaye As Senator, Orders Fresh Election

The Kogi State National Assembly/State Assembly Elections petitions tribunal has sacked Dino Melaye as the Senator representing Kogi west senatorial district.

This was in a judgement delivered on Friday by a three-man panel led by Justice A. O. Chijioke.

The tribunal in a unanimous judgment upheld Senator Smart Adeyemi’s ground and ordered for fresh election in the senatorial district.

Senator Melaye of the  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was declared a winner in the February 2019 National Assembly election but Senator Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) approached the tribunal.

Adeyemi challenged INEC’s declaration citing, irregularities, over voting and non-compliance with the electoral acts.
