ELECTION PETITION JUDGMENT: “THIS IS TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE” – DINO
The senator representing Kogi West senatorial zone in Kogu state, Dino Melaye has described the election petition tribunal’s judgment that nullified his election as a “miscarriage of justice. ”
Reacting to the verdict which came a few hours ago, Melaye in a video message to his supporters called for calm and peace.

According to him, ” I am the next governor of Kogi state, the only thing that will necessitate a re election in Kogi West is after my swearing in as governor because there will need for replacement in the National Assembly, then we will get a PDP replacement.
An election petition tribunal had nullified his election and ordered fresh polls in Kogi West.
