Dino Melaye demands cancellation of elections in 5 LGAs

THE governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dino Melaye, has demanded the cancellation of the elections held in five Local Government Areas of the state (LGA).

Melaye, on Saturday, November 11 – the election day – took to his official X to make the demand.



    “INEC must cancel the election in the five local governments of Kogi Central.  The election in Okene, Okehi, Ajaokuta, Adavi, and Ogori/Mangogo is a scam coordinated from the highest level of INEC”, he said.

    The ICIR reports that the PDP candidate won the election in his polling unit in Iluafon Quarters under the Aiyetoro 1 registration area of Ijumu LGA.

    Melaye polled 210 votes against the All People’s Congress (APC), and African Democratic Party (ADC), who got 22 and seven votes respectively among other political parties’ results.

    Meanwhile, Dino Melaye was not seen voting at his polling unit, but he claimed to be present and had cast his vote.
