BREAKING: Election Petition Tribunal Sacks Dino Melaye as Kogi West Senator


An election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja has sacked Dino Melaye as the representative of the Kogi West senatorial district in the Senate.

Melaye beat his closest challenger, Smart Adeyemi, and other candidates in the election that was conducted on February 23, for a second term in the upper legislative chamber.

Adeyemi filed a petition before the tribunal to contest the result, alleging that the process was plagued with irregularities and disorganisations.

The tribunal agreed with him and annulled the election in a ruling delivered on Friday, August 23.
