Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye has officially rejected the results of Saturday’s Senatorial Elections in the State.
Melaye, who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says he has never seen an election like that of Saturday in his life.
In a video he posted on social media, the politician alleged that all the returning officers in the senatorial district were compromised.
He said the Independent National Electoral (INEC) ought to declare the exercise inconclusive because the number cancelled votes is higher than the margin between the two leading candidates.
Smart Adeyemi, his All Progressives Congress (APC) rival, was leading with over 14,000 votes in the results of five of the seven local government areas earlier announced.
