Appeal Court Nullifies Kogi West Election, Sacks Melaye

Embattled Senator representing Kogi-west Senatorial District, Dino Melaye while reacting to the Friday, Appeal Court Judgement said that in all things he gives glory to God.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Appeal Court on Friday upheld the judgment of the Kogi National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal and ordered a fresh election within 90 days.

According to Melaye, I just lost my election at the Appeal Court and Fresh election ordered. Senator Dino Melaye took to his twitter handle to console himself and calm his aggrieved supporters:

“In all things, I give God the Praise. He who started a good thing will definitely complete it. I ask my supporters to be law-abiding as we shall always overcome. To God be the Glory.”

Melaye, representing Kogi West at the Nigerian Senate, lost his appeal on the tribunal judgment that sacked him as a senator two months ago.

It would be recalled that the Kogi State National Assembly and State Assembly election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja, nullified Melaye’s election in August.

Melaye was declared the winner of the Kogi West Senatorial election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during the February 2019 general election.
