“Dino has never won any election, it’s all manipulations. But the judiciary has further reinstated our hope and that it’s the last hope of the masses.”

He added that he can’t be compared to the controversial lawmaker and he is sure of clinching the ticket in fresh polls to be conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“There’s no basis for comparison between me and Dino, if INEC conducts election again, I will beat him arms down.”

Justice Yahaya Dantijo, who led a three-member panel of the court in a unanimous decision affirmed the judgment of the tribunal who had nullified Melaye’s victory and order for reelection.

Justice Dantijoin who affirmed the ruling of the tribunal ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return given to Senator Dino Melaye and conduct a fresh election within the time frame of the law.
