Appeal Court sacks Dino Melaye, orders fresh poll

The Appeal Court has sacked Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West PDP) from the National Assembly.

But the intermediate appellate court refused to declare his opponent the winner of the poll.

The court which said the election was conducted below standard acceptable by law ordered a fresh poll.

Dino Melaye who was sacked from the National Assembly appears comfortable with the judgment since a fresh poll was ordered

In a tweet on his official Twitter handle, Melaye said:

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.
