Senator Dino Melaye has described as unacceptable the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship primary election in Kogi state in which Engineer Musa Wada emerged victorious.
Melaye condemned the results via his official Twitter page on Wednesday, September 4, saying it is ridiculous to declare a final result of the primary when his votes sorted out on Tuesday, September 3, in eight out of 10 ballot boxes were missing.
It is rediculous to declare a final result of Pdp Governorship primary election in Kogi State when my votes sorted out yesterday in 8 out of 10 ballot boxes are missing. Only to declare votes in 2 out of 10 ballot boxes as my votes. Totally unacceptable. Senator Dino Melaye
