- The broom has swept away entire 16 senators, Adams mocks Dino
A one-time senator, Smart Adeyemi of the All progressives Congress (APC) has romped to victory in the Kogi West rerun supplementary poll concluded on Saturday.
Reacting to his defeat via his Twitter handle; @dino_melaye, Melaye wrote: “16 out of 24 units where supplementary election was conducted today in Kabba/Bunu LG has been cancelled. This speaks volume of the disaster called election. A situation where APC agents were the ones issuing INEC officials result sheets at the pooling units is phenomenal.”
In a statement by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, Congratulating Adeyemi over his electoral victory, Oshiomhole stated that the victory has again affirmed the general acceptance of the ruling party.
He stated: “I have always believed in the ability of the people of Kogi West to elect leaders who will make them proud in the Senate, and not the defeated Senator Melaye who is among the 16 Senators who rebelled against our party.”
“As it stands, the broom has swept away the entire 16 Senators, Dino Melaye being the last, who tried to destabilise our democracy for their personal interest, jettisoning the interest of the electorate.”
