Kogi Election: Dino Withdraws Suit

Senator Dino Melaye has withdrawn the suit asking the Federal High Court in Abuja to restrain the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from conducting the Kogi West supplementary election on Saturday, November 30.

 

The former federal lawmaker through his counsel urged the court to strike out the suit, since its purpose has been overtaken by event, adding that it will be an academic exercise if the court proceeds to entertain the suit.

 

Justice Inyang Ekwo, accordingly struck out the suit.

 

Recall that the Kogi West supplementary election held on Saturday, November 30 with INEC declaring Senator Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as winner of the election.
