The National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Lokoja has, on Friday, sacked Senator Dino Melaye as the Senator for Kogi West.

Reacting to the judgement, Senator Dino Melaye, taking to his Twitter handle, said:

“On Tribunal judgement. No cause 4 alarm at all. Even if it went my way they will still go to the Appeal Court. Our mandate can not be taken. We will get judgment at the Appeal Court. There will be fresh election in Kogi West bc I will be Governor. For my Senate mandate no shaking.”

On his part, Senator Smart Adeyemi earlier tweeted:

“We’ve decided to fight the results of the elections in the tribunal court because constitutional injustices must not be allowed to stand.

“So many irregularities and disorganizations that plagued the election, which all created the perfect storm for the sinister activities that guaranteed the theft of the Kogi West mandate.

“The true question remains, will the justice system perform, as evidently there were discrepancies in the electoral process of the National Assembly elections for Kogi West senatorial district.”
