Kogi Speaker congratulates Senator Smart Adeyemi CON on Tribunal Victory.
10th June, 2020.
Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Prince Matthew Kolawole has congratulated Distinguish Senator Smart Adeyemi CON, Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the National Assembly on his victory at the Kogi State National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja against the Senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Senator Dino Melaye.
The Speaker said it is heartwarming to receive the cheering news of the well deserved victory, stressing that truly those petitions were unsubstantiated and lacked merit.
He said the dismissal of the case is long envisaged as many of the points canvassed by the petitioner is based on hearsay, stressing that the tribunal has done justice to the case.
He further said that the victory wouldn’t have come at a better time than this with the rigorous campaigns that earned the majority votes of the electorates across the 7 Local Government Areas in the senatorial district.
He urged Senator Smart Adeyemi CON to see his victory as an opportunity to do more in moving the zone to the next level of development, noting that the election held on the 16th and 30th November, 2019 was squarely won by the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Senator Smart Adeyemi.
Rt. Hon. Matthew Kolawole on behalf of his family joined other party faithfuls and well wishers, the APC Kogi West Senatorial District, management and staff of the Kogi State House of Assembly to felicitate with and congratulate our amiable Governor, HE, Alhaji Yahaya Bello who is the leader of our great party APC in Kogi State for the victory of Distinguish Senator Smart Adeyemi at the Election Petition Tribunal against the PDP candidate.
Once again, congratulations
Chief Press Secretary to the Honourable Speaker, Kogi State House of Assembly
