Senator Dino Melaye has just been sacked from the National Assembly by an Election Tribunal in Kogi State.
POLITICS NIGERIA just learned that the Kogi state National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal nullified Melaye’s victory. The senator currently represents Kogi West in the Senate.
Melaye (PDP) was declared the winner of the February election by INEC, but Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC) approached the tribunal, challenging INEC’s declaration citing, irregularities, over voting and non-compliance with the electoral acts.
A three-man panel led by Justice A. O. Chijioke in a unanimous judgment on Friday accepted Adeyemi’s ground and order for reelection into the senatorial axis.
