The Kogi West Senatorial District re-run election between Sen. Dino Melaye and Sen. Smart Adeyemi, would now hold same day with the State Governorship election.
A statement released on Monday by the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) says the election between Sen. Melaye of the PDP and Sen. Smart Adeyemi of APC will take place on 16th November, 2019.
It would be recalled that the Appeal Court had nullified the election won by Sen. Dino Melaye, thereby ordering for a re-run following what it described as irregularities.
The Kogi state governorship election had earlier been scheduled for November 16. before the inclusion of Kogi West Senatorial District re-run election.
