Flash : Dino Melaye looses Appeal, court orders fresh elections

An appeal court sitting in Abuja today threw out Dino Melaye’s Appeal of the Verdict of the Elections Petitions Tribunal on the Kogi west senatorial zone, and orders conduct of fresh elections.

Recall that the All Progressives Congress ,APC’s Smart Adeyemi challenged the outcome of the results that declared PDP’s Dino Melaye winner of the senatorial election, which led to the Tribunal ordering conduct of fresh elections in selected polling units where electoral malpractice was established.

Today’s ruling is certainly a major setback for the fortunes of PDP in kogi state .
