Dino Melaye loses in suit against Smart Adeyemi

It is the end of the road for Senator Dino Melaye as the Appeal Court in Abuja on Tuesday dismissed his appeal against Senator Smart Adeyemi.

The court upheld the victory of Adeyemi as the winner of the Kogi West Senatorial District election held last year.

The Electoral Tribunal had thrown out Melaye’s suit, but he went to the Appeal Court to challenge Adeyemi’s victory and lost.

The three-man panel of the court unanimously resolved all seven issues, identified for determination, against Melaye.
