Interestingly, The Kogi State National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal has quashed the victory of Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial district.
Melaye (PDP) was declared winner in the February election by INEC but Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC) approached the tribunal, challenging INEC declaration on three grounds of irregularities, over voting and non compliance with the electoral acts.Consequently, the three man panel while delivering judgement today agreed with SenatorAdeyemi and ordered a fresh election to take place.
However, the man at the Center of the storm, Senator Melaye reacted that he is not perturbed by the outcome of the tribunal.
He tweeted:On Tribunal judgement. No cause 4 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 bc I will be Governor. For my Senate mandate no shaking.
He who laugh last, laugh best…KOGI Governor loading
