The Appeal Court has nullified the election of Kogi West senator, Dino Melaye, with a fresh election ordered.
Dino Melaye revealed this via a tweet:
“I just lost my election at the Appeal Court and fresh election ordered. In all things,I give God the praise. He who started the good thing will definitely complete it. I ask my supporters to be law-abiding as we shall always overcome. To God be the Glory”.
The ruling comes after Dino Melaye appealed a Kogi State election tribunal ruling which nullified his election.
The senator was declared winner of the February election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
This was however challenging by Smart Adeyemi of the APC on grounds of irregularities, over-voting and non-compliance with the electoral acts.
