…to battle Smart Adeyemi

A civil rights activist and former member of the House of Representatives, Otunba Dino Melaye on Monday clinched the ticket of the All Progressives Congress to contest for  Kogi West Senatorial District in the 2015 general election.

He will therefore slug it out with the incumbent Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District and former National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Mr. Smart Adeyemi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Adeyemi’s victory was shocking as he upstaged Tunde Ogbeha and Gen. David Jemibewon (retd) and defeated their anointed ‘son’.

The Chairman, APC Primary Election Committee in Kogi State, Engr. Ebitei Francis and Secretary, Hon. Bala Ajeje, declared Dino Melaye winner having scored 2, 077  votes to defeat his rival, Bidemi Adeyemi, who scored 326 votes in the primary election which took place in Kabba.

Dino Melaye having scored the highest number of votes has therefore been declared winner.

    The election that produce Dino was a fraud orchestrated by Dino himself. How could a man of his age who claim to be fighting corruption in the land not know that hijacking primaries materials to his own favour is also called corruption. I wonder what his own illustration of corruption is
