Melaye out of Senate as Court of Appeals orders fresh elections

The Court of Appeal on Friday morning dismissed the appeal of Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the National Assembly.

Earlier in August, the National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal had declared that Melaye did not win  the Saturday, February 23, 2019 Senatorial election for a second term in the upper legislative chamber.

The Court of Appeal upheld the decision of the lower Tribunal and ordered a rerun election.

Melaye confirmed this via his twitter account on Friday:

Senator Dino Melaye

“I just lost my election at the Appeal Court and Fresh election ordered. 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”.
