Senator Dino Melaye has reacted to the Appeal Court ruling which affirmed his removal as Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District.
The Appeal Court in its ruling on Friday upheld the judgement of the Election Petition Tribunal which sacked Melaye and ordered a fresh election.
The Tribunal had sacked him in August and ordered that a fresh election be conducted. Not pleased by the ruling, Melaye filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal in Abuja, but the ruling remains unfavourable for him.
The lawmaker took to his Twitter page shortly after the court order to announce that he has been sacked, “We shall always overcome,” he added.
