If Dino Goes, Who’s Going To Entertain Us?

October 23, 2019

Now, I don’t mean to alarm everyone that gets their senate entertainment from Kogi West Senator – Dino Melaye, but there is a chance our guy might be leaving the Senate, come November 16th.

Remember how back in February, Dino gave us this little show after being declared winner of his senatorial race over Smart Adeyemi of the APC?

Well, it would appear this may have been a tad bit premature, much as we love to see him bust a move or two for the gram.

You see, there were these little things called allegations against him that he may or may not have been involved in a little bit of the riggy-rig in February’s elections.

Actually, these little things were quite major, so much so that allegations of irregularities, overvoting and non-compliance with the Electoral Act, were brought against him by his closest rival in the elections – Smart Adeyemi. And the courts believed him!

First the election tribunal led by Justice A.O Chijioke said yep, Melaye did some dirty things during the elections and they weren’t dirty dancing. Then the Court of Appeal cut off the music right before Melaye could give us another monster dance hit, sacking him as the senate representative of Kogi West.

Now, a new election will be held on November 16th, 2019 to determine who will represent Kogi West in the Senate. Will our favourite insta-thot Dino Melaye have it, or is Smart Adeyemi going to have the final say? Guess we’ll find out.
