Senator Melaye, candidate of the People’s Democratic Party for the senatorial election, was declared a winner in the February 2019 National Assembly election but Senator Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) approached the tribunal and challenged Dino’s victory, citing irregularities, over voting and non-compliance with the electoral acts.
