Controversial Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dino Melaye, will continue to represent the people of Kogi West till 2019! And so said an Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in the State capital, Lokoja, this morning.
A former Senator and member of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, who slugged it out with him in the last election, Smart Adeyemi, had been battling to have the election upturned. But ruling on the matter today, the Tribunal maintained that Adeyemi’s reasons lacked merit. Thus it upheld Melaye’s election as the Senator duly elected to represent Kogi West.
A former member of the House of Representatives, Melaye is currently the Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Publicity. He’s been celebrating with his fans and supporters ever since.
