Kogi West: Adeyemi Defeats Melaye



The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Kogi West Senatorial District election, Smart Adeyemi, has been declared the  winner of the Kogi West senatorial election.

The rerun election  held  in 53 polling units across seven Local Government Areas.

The Independent National Electoral Commission  appointed Returning Officer for election, Professor Olayinde Lawal,  said  Adeyemi polled 88,373 to defeat his closest rival, Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party who polled 62,133.

The election petition tribunal had ordered a fresh election and this held on November 16. It was however declared inconclusive  because the number of cancelled votes was higher than the margin between the PDP and APC candidates.
