  • JUST IN! Dino Melaye LOSES At Appeal Court; Fresh Senatorial Election To Hold
  • Dino Melaye LOSES At Appeal Court; Fresh Senatorial Election To Hold

    The appeal court has upheld verdict given by the election petition tribunal
    sacking Dino Melaye as senator representing Kogi west.

    In a ruling delivered Friday, October 11, the court ordered the conduct of a fresh election in the zone.

    Aynaijang.com had reported how the Kogi state governorship/national assembly election tribunal, Friday, August 23, ordered a fresh election in a unanimous judgement.


    Melaye's victory in the senatorial election held February 2019 was disputed and challanged by his major contender, Smart Adeyemi (APC) before the tribunal.


    Adeyemi alleged that irregularities, over-voting and non compliance with the INEC's electoral acts marred the election.

    The three man panel led by Justice A. O. Chijioke therefore ruled in his favour.

    Melaye was elected on the platform of the main opposition party, PDP. He showed interest to contest against the state's governor, Yahaya Bello, in the gubernatorial election coming up November 16, but he failed to emerg as the party's standard bearer during a primary held weeks ago.
