The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, on Friday sacked the Senator representing Kogi West senatorial district in the Senate, Dino Melaye.
The Court affirmed the judgement of the Kogi State National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal delivered by Justice O.A. Chijioke on August 23, which nullified Dino’s election.
The Appellate Court ordered the Independent Electoral Commission( INEC) to conduct fresh elections in the district within 90 days.
Reacting to the judgment on his twitter handle, Dino tweeted, “I just lost my election at the Appeal Court and Fresh election ordered. In all things, I give God the praise. He who started a good thing will definitely complete it. I ask my supporters to be law-abiding as we shall always overcome. To God be the Glory.”
