Senator Dino Melaye

The election tribunal in Lokoja, Kogi State, has nullified the election of Dino Melaye, as the senator representing Kogi West.

Mr. Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress, APC, had gone to court to challenge that victory.

A new election will now be conducted for the seat.

Senator Melaye responded to the development on his twitter handle.

He also said the tribunal’s decision would not derail his gubernatorial ambition.
