Tribunal Sacks Dino Melaye, Orders New Election
The Kogi State National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal has nullified the election of Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West senatorial district.
This was in a judgement delivered on Friday by a three-man panel led by Justice Anthony Chijioke.
APC candidate, Sam Adeyemi proceeded to challenge the declaration on three grounds of irregularities, overvoting and non-compliance with the Electoral Act.
The three-man panel in a unanimous judgment on Friday, accepted Adeyemi’s ground and ordered for another election in the senatorial district.
