Dino Melaye storms INEC Headquarters, presents 21 petitions, videos

Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the last Saturday’s inconclusive election, Senator Dino Melaye on Wednesday stormed the national headquarter of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja demanding the cancellation of the Kogi West senatorial election.

The lawmaker disclosed in a tweet that he presented along with the petition 21 video clips documenting the reported electoral malpractices that occurred during the poll.

Melaye said he was received by INEC secretary, Rose Orianran-Anthony and the national commissioner Festus Okoye.

“National commissioner of INEC Festus Okoye and Secretary of INEC receiving my petition today with 21 video CD’s documentary evidence,” he tweeted.

Speaking with the newsmen, Melaye said “if INEC has any integrity, they should cancel the last Saturday’s election. It was marred with violence, returns were made where people were killed, where ballot boxes were snatched and where no election held.

In his reaction, Okoye said the commission has received the petition and the videos and we will review and take a decision on it.
