Kogi west rerun: I'll head to court if INEC vaidates previous result, says Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye has stated that he will head to court if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) validates the previous results recorded in the Kogi West senatorial rerun election.

Melaye who was speaking to journalists after casting his vote, said he stands by his earlier demand that INEC cancels eletion results in places he alleged were marred by violence in the November 16 elections.

His words: “We do not hope that the disaster that happened on the 16th of November won't repeat itself again.”

On his position regarding the proposed cancellation, Melaye said: “Every sane person will hold that position, because what we have as a result is a fraud.

“What we have is that places where INEC themselves cancelled, voting will not reflect the supplementary election and for me, that is a major fraud.”
