Senator Dino Melaye has rejected the declaration of Smart Adeyemi as the winner of the Kogi West Senatorial District Rerun election.
Raidar News reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared APC’s Adeyemi the winner of the Kogi west senatorial election.
The returning officer of the election Olayinde Lawal declared Adeyemi winner at the end of the rerun on Saturday, November 30.
According to the INEC returning officer, Adeyemi polled 88,373 votes to defeat his closest challenger, Dino Melaye of the PDP who got 62,133 votes.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle on Sunday, Senator Dino Melaye vowed to challenge the outcome of the election.
He wrote: “I want to specially thank God almighty that he preserved my life after 5 attempted assassination, combined forces of security agencies, INEC, Federal, State and LG powers. I was fought on land, in the air and spiritually. It was not about the election but my life. God, I thank you.
“I will challenge the temporal and evaporative victory of Adeyemi at the Tribunal. Victory attained by violence and fraud is tantamount to defeat..for it is momentary. It is not about Dino MELAYE, it is about Nigeria and our electoral system. I stay the course..not over yet.
“The reaction of men and women of goodwill all over Nigeria especially the wonderful people of Kogi west who truly voted for me is a testimony that God is with me and with us all. I won the election and Adeyemi remain my political wife. Thank you Nigerians. Victory is certain.
“The forces against me are not beyond God. People should not worry about me, I am fine and will always be. I just thank God that the plan to kill me did not succeed. A living Dog is better than a dead lion. I thank God for life. My name is Daniel I can not fall or fail.”
