Tribunal sacks Dino as Kogi West Senator

 By Boluwaji Obahopo, Lokoja Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial district has been sacked by the Kogi State National Assembly/State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal.

 Melaye (PDP) was declared winner in the February election by INEC, but Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC)challenged the victory at   the tribunal, alleging irregularities, over voting and non compliance with the electoral acts.

The three man panel led by Justice A. O. Chijioke in a unanimous judgment on Friday accepted Adeyemi’s ground and ordered a reelection into the senatorial axis. Senator Melaye is the flamboyant supporter of former Senate President Bukola Saraki from Kwara. 

Both were originally members of the APC when the party came into power in 2015 but soon fell out with the leadership of APC that opposed the emergence of Saraki as Senate President. Sonorous Senator Melaye was noted for high drama  in and out the Senate. 

When he was not waxing songs and dancing to deride the opposition, he was at war with his state governor or the police authorities over sundry allegations. Both Senators Dino Melaye and Smart Adeyemi chaired the Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
