Melaye said this while lamenting the outcome of Saturday’s Rerun Senatorial election in Kogi State.

Melaye vowed to reclaim his seat at the Senate, adding that he started politics before Adeyemi, hence he will still remain his political wife no matter what happened.

Speaking on Channels Tv, he said: “There was no election, there was only an attempt to kill me.

“I want to assure you that Smart Adeyemi would remain my political wife. I started politics before him.

“I will reclaim my mandate because I was voted. I won the election, but through the instrumentality of violence and national conspiracy, these have been tampered with. I want to assure Nigerians that it is temporal.”

We reported that Adeyemi, APC candidate of the Kogi West Senatorial election got 88,373 votes to defeat Dino of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), his closest challenger, who polled 62,133 votes.


Why I won Kogi West election – Smart Adeyemi attacks Dino Melaye

The newly-elected Senator for Kogi West, Smart Adeyemi has explained why he defeated Dino Melaye at the rerun Senatorial election.

Adeyemi said he won the election because Kogi people needed a change from having a senator like Dino representing them.

He added that Dino Melaye was defeated in the just concluded rerun election because he did nothing for Kogi residents rather than enrich himself with cars.

Speaking on Channels Tv, Adeyemi said:“I won the election based on the conviction of the Nigerian people, people of my senatorial district, and the people of my state that the time had come for them to effect a change.

“Dino did nothing since he has been there, rather than buying cars and showing to the Nigerian people.

“Dino has never worked anywhere before, he was on the street, how can he claim to have been in politics before me

“I am sure that no Nigerian would want to have somebody like Dino as a Senator. May Nigeria never have the kind of Dino as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
