Nigerians have continued to mock Senator Dino Melaye over the news of his sack by the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal, Igbere TV reports.
Akelicious had reported that Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial District, was sacked by the Election Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Friday, August 23.
The Tribunal in an unanimous decision by a five-man panel, had accepted Smart Adeyemi’s petition and ordered for fresh election in the senatorial district.
Adeyemi, candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Feb. 23 election, had approached the tribunal challenging Melaye’s victory, citing irregularities, over-voting and non-compliance with the electoral acts.
The Kogi West Senator had reacted to the news earlier in a tweet sighted by Akelicious on his handle @dino_melaye;
“On Tribunal judgement. No cause 4 alarm at all. Even if it went my way they will still go to the Appeal Court. Our mandate can not be taken. We will get judgment at the Appeal Court. There will be fresh election in Kogi West bc I will be Governor. For my Senate mandate no shaking”, he wrote.
But Nigerians have taking a swipe at the tweet, mocking the Senator who is currently seeking to govern his state under the Peoples Democratic Party.
