Reactions have continued to trail the just concluded Kogi West Senatorial election.
Dino Melaye of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) lost his bid to retain his seat at the Senate as Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was pronounced winner Saturday.
Mr Adeyemi polled 88,373 votes while Mr Melaye recorded 62,133 votes, according to the result announced by the returning officer, Olajide Lawal.
Ahead of the rerun, Mr Melaye said, “I have said it time and time again and I’m repeating it again, Smart Adeyemi is my political wife.”
With the APC candidate emerging victoriously, Nigerians have taken it all out on the PDP flagbearer.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
