Senator Dino Melaye said the newly elected senator representing Kogi West, Smart Adeyemi, remains his “political wife”.
Melaye said this while complaining about the outcome of the senatorial rerun elections in Kogi state.
Melaye promised to claim his seat in the Senate, adding that he started the policy before Adeyemi, therefore, will remain his political wife, whatever happened.
Speaking on Channels Tv, he said: “There was no election, there was only an attempt to kill me.
“I want to assure you that Smart Adeyemi would remain my political wife. I started politics before him.
“I will reclaim my mandate because I was voted. I won the election, but through the instrumentality of violence and national conspiracy, these have been tampered with. I want to assure Nigerians that it is temporal.”
