Senator Dino Melaye has insisted he won the kogi west rerun election and that his conqueror, Senator Smart Adeyemi remained his political wife.
INEC’s Returning Officer of the election, Professor Olajide Lawal, had said Adeyemi, who represented the district from 2007-2015, polled 88,373 votes to beat Senator Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who scored 62,133 votes.
But reacting to his defeat, Melaye said he would go to court, saying he believed he won the election.
In a series of tweets on his Twitter handle, Melaye said he survived five assassination attempts on his life and that he was grateful that God stood with him and preserved his life, adding that he is Daniel that no man can defeat.
“The forces against me are not beyond God. People should not worry about me, I am fine and will always be. I just thank God that the plan to kill me did not succeed. A living dog is better than a dead lion. I thank God for life. My name is Daniel, I can not fall or fail.”
