KOGI: PDP claims Tribunal sacked Sen Melaye for ‘a pot of porridge’

Police begins investigation into Melaye’s ‘kidnap’

The Kogi State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has kicked against the nullification of the election of Senator Dino Melaye (PDP- Kogi West) by a tribunal which sat on Friday in Abuja.

The party made its view on the matter known in a statement signed by Bode Ogunmola, spokesman for the party in the state, on Saturday.

He said that the tribunal murdered justice and democracy by sacking Melaye for what it described as “a pot of porridge”, noting that justice would be done in the appeal court.

Ogunmola who urged party members to remain unperturbed by the development, argued that Melaye’s election was the only credible one held and adjudged as the fairest during the last national and state assembly polls in the state.

“It’s very certain that nobody can subvert people’s mandate, where God lives, and we are not worried, because the whole world is laughing at the charade ruling that claims to nullify the PDP victory,” he said.
