He said the decision of the Tribunal to order fresh election inline with the prayers of Senator Smart Adeyemi CON was a victory for not only our candidate and party but for the entire well meaning people of Kogi West who don’t belief in hooliganism and thuggery before they can get anything done.
He said this has shown clearly that the people really voted for our party during the said election but the result was manipulated in favour of the opposition.
According to him, the outcome of the Tribunal has rekindled hope of the common man in the judiciary, noting that truly the elections were marred with irregularities.
