Melaye, Adeyemi In Media War Toward Kogi Senate Re-run Election


LAGOS OCTOBER 12TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Senator Dino Melaye has boasted that he would defeat Senator Smart Adeyemi again in a re-run election to be conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The Appeal Court had on Friday upheld the election of the National Assembly Kogi Election Tribunal which nullified the election of Melaye and ordered a re-run.

Adeyemi had vowed to defeat Melaye in the re-run election to be conducted by INEC soon.
In his reaction, Melaye said Adeyemi is his political wife and that he would defeat him again.
He said he had defeated Adeyemi on two previous occasion and that he would score a hat-trick this time around.
“Smart Adeyemi is my political wife, I was in APC, I contested against him in PDP, I defeated him. I came to PDP and he went to APC, I defeated him, that is two zero and going back for the third time, it will be hat-trick. I will score the third goal,” Melaye wrote on his Instagram page.
Reacting, Smart Adeyemi, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Kogi West Senatorial District election, said he will beat Senator Dino Melaye arms down in the fresh elections ordered by the Court of Appeal in a ruling on Friday.
According to senator Adeyemi in a short message alleged that Senator Melaye had never won any election, owing to manipulations.
“Dino has never won any election, it’s all manipulations. But the judiciary has further reinstated our hope and that it’s the last hope of the masses.”
He further stated that both Melaye and he have no comparison, and he is sure of clinching the ticket in fresh polls conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“There’s no basis for comparison between me and Dino, if INEC conducts election again, I will beat him arms down.”
