Dino Melaye reacts as Election Tribunal sack him as Kogi West Senator

The Kogi State National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal has sacked Dino Melaye as Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district.

Senator Smart Adeyemi had approached the tribunal challenging INEC’s declaration of Dino Melaye as winner of the February election.

The tribunal in a judgement on Friday nullified the election and ordered fresh elections in the senatorial district.

Meanwhile, Dino Melaye took his official Twitter handle to react to the outcome of the judgement.

He tweeted: “On Tribunal judgement. No cause for 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 because I will be Governor. For my Senate mandate no shaking.”
