Update: Dino Melaye Reacts To Tribunal Rulling

The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye on Friday has vowed to appeal the judgement of the  Kogi West National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal which nullified his victory in the March 22 election

Africa News24 (AN24) earlier reported that the tribunal nullified Dino’s election on Friday, August 23rd.

This online news platform recalls the results declared by INEC showed that Melaye, who contested the election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 85,395 votes to defeat Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who polled 66,901 votes.

Apparently displeased with the outcome of the election Adeyemi approached the tribunal which in turn, ruled in his favour on Friday.
