“I Won’t Challenge My Election Loss in Court” – Dino Melaye
Dino Melaye, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the just concluded Kogi State Governorship election, has decided not to seek legal redress following his electoral loss, citing the alleged subjugation of the judiciary to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Melaye made the announcement during a media briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, accusing the judiciary of becoming an “arm” of the APC.
The former senator lamented the judiciary’s alleged inaction while members of the ruling party openly boasted of their control over the judicial system during campaigns.
He said, “Judiciary is no longer the last hope of the ordinary people, it is now a department under the All Progressives Congress. Why should any responsible person go to the tribunal when the APC have captured the judiciary?
“I have lost complete confidence in the judiciary.”
