Melaye Faults those Congratulating Smart Adeyemi

Senator who represented Kogi West at the eighth Senate, Dino Melaye, has berated those celebrating the electoral victory of Mr. Smart Adeyemi in last Saturday’s rerun election.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Adeyemi the Senator-elect for Kogi West, having polled a total of 88,373 votes, compared to Melaye’s 62,133 votes.

But Dino Melaye berated those congratulating his rival, Adeyemi for his victory at the just concluded Kogi west re-run.

Melaye had tweeted yesterday: “Congratulating Smart Adeyemi will amount to congratulating an armed robber after successful operation.”

Melaye described Adeyemi victory as ‘temporal and evaporative, vowing to contest the results announced by INEC in court.
