The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in last Saturday’s Kogi West Senatorial rerun, Senator Dino Melaye, has reiterated that Smart Adeyemi is his “political wife”.
Melaye said this while lamenting the outcome of Saturday’s Rerun Senatorial election in Kogi State.
Adeyemi picked up 88,373 votes to defeat Dino his closest challenger, who polled 62,133 votes.
Melaye vowed to reclaim his seat at the Senate, adding that he started politics before Adeyemi, hence he will still remain his political wife no matter what happened.
Speaking on Channels Tv, he said: “There was no election, there was only an attempt to kill me.
“I want to assure you that Smart Adeyemi would remain my political wife. I started politics before him.
“I will reclaim my mandate because I was voted. I won the election, but through the instrumentality of violence and national conspiracy, these have been tampered with. I want to assure Nigerians that it is temporal.”
