The never disappointing social media has joined in with memes and hilarious remarks to the news of the sacking of Dino Melaye from his position as the senator representing Kogi West.
Melaye (PDP) was declared winner in the February election by INEC, but Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC) approached the tribunal, challenging INEC’s declaration citing, irregularities, over voting and non-compliance with the electoral acts.
The three-man panel led by Justice A. O. Chijioke in a unanimous judgment on Friday accepted Adeyemi’s ground and ordered for reelection into the senatorial axis.

The current judiciary scares me.
Reading about the annulment of Dino Melaye’s election that everyone in my Senatorial District knows was a straight win where almost all votes recorded for Smart Adeyemi was rigged, gives me reason to worry.
