Dino reacts to election defeat


Former senator who represented Kogi West senatorial district at the Senate, Dino Melaye, has finally reacted over the defeat he suffered on Saturday, November 30, during the supplementary election in his constituency.
Dino Melaye was defeated by his main challenger and candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Smart Adeyemi.
The returning officer of the election, Professor Olajide Lawal, announced this at the collation centre in the state on Saturday, November 30.
He said Adeyemi polled a total of 88,373 votes to beat Melaye who scored 62,133 votes.
Reacting to the outcome of the election, Melaye, who wrote on his Twitter page on Sunday, December 1, said he was fought in the land, air and in the spiritual realm.
He alleged that there were assassination attempts on his life, adding that combined forces of security agencies, INEC, Federal, State and local power worked against him in the election.
Melaye, however, thanked God for his life despite the loss in the election, saying that it was not about the election but his life.
