Senator Dino Melaye Reacts to PDO Kogi Guber tickets

Nigerian Senator who was recently recalled from the red Chambers, senator Dino Melaye has reacted to his loss in yesterday’s PDP Gubernatorial primaries held in Lokoja, Kogi state capital.

The former senator lost the ticket to Musa Wada, a brother to a former governor of the state, Idris Wada.

In a tweet on Wednesday night, the senator said it was ridiculous to declare the final results when his votes already sorted in eight out of 10 ballot boxes went missing while results were been announced. He said the outcome of the election is “totally” unacceptable.

“It is ridiculous to declare a final result of PDP Governorship primary election in Kogi State when my votes sorted out yesterday in 8 out of 10 ballot boxes are missing,”

Melaye tweeted.

“Only to declare votes in 2 out of 10 ballot boxes as my votes. Totally unacceptable.”

Idris Wada polled 748 votes to clinch PDP’s ticket while Melaye, who came fourth, secured 70.

Abubakar Ibrahim, a son of Abubakar Audu, a former governor of the state, came second with 710 votes.
