The appeal court has affirmed the decision of the election petition tribunal sacking Dino Melaye as senator representing Kogi west. 

The court ordered the conduct of a fresh election in the zone.

Melaye wrote on his official Twitter page that, “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.”
