The Court of Appeal in Abuja today sacked the Senator representing Kogi West, in Kogi State, Dino Melaye. The Court affirmed the earlier judgment of the Kogi State National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal.

The Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, is to conduct fresh elections within 90 days from today, Friday, October 11 2019.

Recall that the Kogi State National and State Assembly Election Tribunal sitting in Abuja had sacked Senator Dino Melaye as the representative of Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly.
The judgment delivered by the chairman of the tribunal, Justice A.O Chijoke, ordered that INEC should conduct a fresh election for the district within 90 days. 
The judgment was on the petition filed by Smart Adeyemi, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 26 election.
Dino confirmed it in a tweet on his official Twitter handle.

I just lost my election at the Appeal Court and Fresh election ordered. In all things I give God the Praise. He who started a good thing will definitely complete it. I ask my supporters to be law abiding as we shall always overcome. To God be the Glory.
