Dino Melaye loses at the Court of Appeal in bid to return to the Red Chambers.

Former Kogi West senatorial district representative, Senator Dino Melaye may as well forget his battle to get back to the Red Chambers, the SENATE by legal means.

Senator Melaye Tuesday lost his bid to return to the Senate, about eight months after he was defeated in the Kogi West senatorial district election via the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja.

Senator Melaye had filed a suit at the Court of Appeal to challenge the judgement of the Kogi State National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal which affirmed the election of Senator Adeyemi.

He asked the court to upturn the decision of the Tribunal that declared Senator Adeyemi as the winner of the election.

A three-man panel of justices of the appellate court, however, dismissed the suit in its judgment delivered on Tuesday in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

He contested the November 2019 poll on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and lost to Senator Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
