Kogi West Senatorial Election: Melaye Rejects Results, To Go To Court
People’s Democratic Party Candidate, Senator Dino Melaye has rejected the results of the Kogi West Senatorial District rerun Held on Saturday.
Melaye who lost to the election to Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a statement made available vowed to challenge the elections result in court.
According to him, “I will challenge the temporal and evaporative victory of Adeyemi at the Tribunal. Victory attained by violence and fraud is tantamount to defeat, for it is momentary. It is not about Dino MELAYE, it is about Nigeria and our electoral system. I stay the course, not over yet.
“The reaction of men and women of goodwill all over Nigeria, especially the wonderful people of Kogi west who truly voted for me is a testimony that God is with me and with us all. I won the election and Adeyemi remains my political wife. Thank you Nigerians. Victory is certain.
“The forces against me are not beyond God. People should not worry about me, I am fine and will always be. I just thank God that the plan to kill me did not succeed. A living dog is better than a dead lion. I thank God for life. My name is Daniel, I can not fall or fail,” the statement read.
