Melaye Heads To Tribunal Monday, Gets PDP’s Support

The Peoples Democratic Party on Thursday aligned itself with the decision of its Kogi West Senatorial candidate , Dino Melaye , to file a petition at the Kogi State Election Petition Tribunal over the declaration of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Smart Adeyemi, as the winner of the recent senatorial election .

The PDP National Publicity Secretary , Mr Kola Ologbondiyan , in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja said the petition would be filed on Monday .

Ologbondiyan said, “ We are going to the tribunal . We are going to file our application at the tribunal . We won the election .

“ We will file the appeal hopefully on Monday . The party and the candidate are going to court together .”

Melaye had said he would approach the tribunal to challenge Adeyemi ’s declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission .

He had in a series of tweets on Sunday described Adeyemi’s victory as temporal and evaporative .

He said, “ 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 ’ s about Nigeria and our electoral system . I stay the course … not over yet .”
