Court Sacks Melaye As Senator

Dino Loses Kogi PDP Primary

Naija News on Wednesday reported that Senator Dino Melaye suffered serious defeat in the primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State.

It will be recalled Melaye came fourth after the result of the primary election was declared on Wednesday by the election committee headed by Adamawa governor Ahmadu Fintiri.

Musa Wada, a younger brother of the immediate past Governor Idris Wada, scored 748 votes to clinch the party ticket and was closely followed by Abubakar Mohammed Ibrahim, the son of a former governor, Ibrahim Idris (Ibro), who polled 710 votes.

This online news platform understands that the immediate past governor of the state, Capt. Wada, came third with 345 votes while Senator Dino Melaye ‘pitiably‘ pulled 70 vote to emerge fourth.

Votes pulled by other contestants include Aminu Suleiman- 55 votes, Victor Adoji-54, Erico Joseph- 42, AVM Saliu Atawodi (retd.)- 11, Emmanuel Omebije- 9 votes, Mohammed Shuaibi- 4 votes, Bayo Michael- 2 votes and Jabiru Haruna- 0.

Nigerians have since taken to Twitter to express their views on the outcome of the primary, particularly, Dino’s loss at the primary election.
