Saturday’s rerun for the Kogi West senatorial District election between Senators Dino Melaye and Smart Adeyemi is gradually coming to an end as collation of results has commenced.

As at press time, results are being gathered and announced in different polling units and collation centers in the state.

The supplementary election is between the candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Melaye and Adeyemi are engaged in a fresh battle of who occupies the Kogi West senatorial district after the former, who is the sitting lawmaker lost in court.

The Court of Appeal had declared the seat vacant when it upheld the decision of the Tribunal which had earlier sacked Dino Melaye.

Melaye is running on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) while Adeyemi is carrying the APC’s flag.

Recall that INEC had on November 18 declared the Kogi West Senatorial election as ‘inconclusive.

The returning officer, Professor Olayinde Lawal, said the margin between the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Smart Adeyemi and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Dino Melaye is 20,570.

He said Adeyemi polled a total of 80,118 votes, while Melaye got 59,548 votes from the seven Local Government Areas in the senatorial district.

Prof Lawal explained that the total margin between both candidates is lower than the 43,127 registered voters in 53 polling units of 20 registration areas in the zone where elections were cancelled.

BREAKING: Supreme Court Rejects Zamfara APC’s Request For Judgment’s Review



The Supreme Court has dismissed the application by the Abdulaziz Yari faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for a review of its May 24, 2019 judgment in the intra-party dispute in the Zamfara APC.

In a majority ruling on Friday, four members of a five-member panel, led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Muhammad, dismissed the application on the grounds that it was without merit.

Justice Inyang Okoro, in the lead judgment, held that the ruling was a gross abuse of the process of the court.

Justice Okoro proceeded to award cost of N2million against the applicant.

In a dissenting judgment, Justice Centus Nweze held that the court ought to have reviewed the judgment by setting aside the consequential order which made the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the ultimate beneficiary of the intra-party crisis in the Zamfara APC.

Justice Nweze noted that the Supreme Court has reviewed its decision before and should be bold enough to admit where there are errors that ought to be rectified.

He dismissed the objection raised by the respondents, upheld the application and granted the prayers sought.

Through his Twitter handle this afternoon, Dr. Salihu explained that Governor Mohammed, alongside his entourage, met with the Vice President’s son while on flight from Lagos to Abuja.

He added that they all have also taken test and are expecting the result as at the time of this report.

The tweet reads:

“Our Governor Bala Mohammed in self isolation following contact with Atiku Abubakar’s Son. Yes. We were on the same flight from Lagos to Abuja. They shook hands and exchanged pleasantries. The Gov and the rest of us have taken tests. The results will be negative in sha Allah.”
