Dino Melaye Reacts As Appeal Court Nullifies Kogi West Election

Senator Dino Melaye, the lawmaker representing Kogi west senatorial district, has described as a civil war, the senatorial rerun and gubernatorial elections held on Saturday, November 16th in Kogi state.

The lawmaker said so while disclosing that 16 lives were lost during the election.

Dino had contested in the Kogi west senatorial rerun election under the platform of People’s Democratic Party which was declared inconclusive by INEC.

Dino said he would meet the international community to report Yahaya Bello, Smart Adeyemi, and Sunday Faleke before proceeding to Hague.

What we had in Kogi is no election, what we had was a civil war that has claimed 16 lives so far. I will report Bello, Smart Adeyemi, Taofik, Speaker Kolawole and Sunday Faleke to the international community and then proceed to Hague. This i promise,” Melaye tweeted.

He also alleged that the total registered voters for Okene LGA was 118,543 and that the PVCs collected was 48,065, saying that INEC announced that APC scored 112,764 votes, which exceeded PVCs collected with 64,543 votes.
