It is politics of "Winner Takes All" for the ruling All Progressive Congress after the ousting of one of their major critic Senator Dino Melaye in the Just concluded Re-run Elections in Kogi West Senatorial District where Senator Smart Adeyemi of the APC pulled 88,373 votes, leading Dino who scored 62,133 votes as announced by INEC.
This result only confirms that Dino Melaye would not be returning to the National Assembly as Smart Adeyemi is set to resume as Senator Representing Kogi West Senatorial district in the upper legislative chambers.
From all Indications, The APC is not taking these recent Victory's with any levity.
APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomoleh had boasted how "As it stands today, 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." Apparently refering to the 16 Senators who dumped the APC for at the Time to pitch tent with Ex Senate President Bukola Saraki.
As if that was not enough for Dino to Sweat, Lauretta Onochie took to her twitter Handle not too long after INEC Announced results that indicated Dino was not going back to the National Assembly.
Lauretta tweeted fron her verified twitter handle @Laurestar in the aftermath of the results announcement.
"Contrary to their Wishes, @MBuhari is still very much alive. He is still the leader of our great Nation. Dino Melaye on the other hand is now an ExSenator going by the results coming from Kogi West.
He can now face his acting career and his pending criminal charges..
Dino Melaye has vowed to challenge the result of the Elections in Court describing it as a Major Fraud.
Dino Said "What we have as results is fraud.... a major fraud. The November 16th election was a fraud that would not stand."
Dino has vowed to approach the court for redress.
