ELECTION PETITIONS TRIBUNAL SACKS DINO MELAIYE

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

Smart Adeyemi challenged Senator Melaye’s victory on three grounds of irregularities, over voting and non-compliance with the electoral acts.

In its judgement, the tribunal comprised of a three-man panel led by Justice Chijioke ordered that fresh elections should be held in the senatorial district.
