Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Smart Adeyemi has said that his opponent Senator Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) had never won any election in Kogi West as claimed.
Adeyemi who had represented Kogi West twice under the platform of the PDP from 2007 – 2011 and 2011 – 2015, is seeking a third term at the Senate under the APC.
Reacting to Friday’s Appeal Court judgment which ordered a fresh election in the senatorial district, the former lawmaker boasted that he will defeat Melaye when the fresh election is conducted.
“Dino has never won any election, it’s all manipulations. But the judiciary has vindicated us and further reinstated our hope and that it’s the last hope of the masses.
“There’s no basis for comparison between Dino and I, if INEC conducts election again, I will beat him arms down,” he said.
Melaye lost his appeal on the grounds that his application challenging the judgment of the Tribunal, could not prove the allegations that he was not given a fair hearing.
