No sane person will go to tribunal over election results– Dino Melaye


Dino Melaye, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the just concluded Kogi governorship election, says no sane person will go to the tribunal over results of an election.


Melaye spoke on Wednesday during a briefing with the media in Abuja.


The politician alleged that the judiciary has been compromised.


“Judiciary is no longer the last hope of the ordinary people,” he said.


 “Why should any responsible person go to the tribunal? I have lost complete confidence in the judiciary.”


On November 12, the Independent National Electoral Commission declared Usman Ododo, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the Kogi governorship election.


Ododo polled 446, 237 votes to defeat Murtala Ajaka of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) who came second with  259,052 votes.


Melaye of the PDP scored 46,362 votes.
