Following three appeals against the judgment of an Election Petitions Tribunal which removed Dino Melaye as the senator representing Kogi West, the Court of Appeal in Abuja has on Tuesday reserved judgments.
The three-man panel of the Court led by Justice Abubakar Yahaya, said the date of judgments, when fixed, would be announced to the parties through their lawyers.
Three appeals were filed by Melaye, his party, the Peoples Democratic Party, and the Independent National Electoral Commission to challenge the verdict of the Kogi State National/State Assembly Election Tribunal in Abuja delivered on August 23.
The three-man tribunal, led by Justice A.O. Chijioke, had in a split two-to-one decision, ordered INEC to conduct a fresh election within 90 days.
The petition was filed by Smart Adeyemi, and his party, the All Progressives Congress, contending that the February 23, 2019, was marred by irregularities.
