Minister of State, Labour & Employment, Festus Keyamo has commiserated with Senator Dino Melaye over his lost to Senator Smart Adeyemi.
Senator Dino lost to Senator Smart at the polls on Saturday, 30th of November 2019. It was a supplementary election to elect a Senator that will represent Kogi West Senatorial District.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the November 16th rerun inconclusive because the cancelled votes were more than the margin between the two closest rivals.
Keyamo described the lost of Dino at the Saturday’s poll as a confirmation that it was God that made President Muhammadu Buhari a president in 2015.
The minister said all those who thought that they made Buhari President in 2015 and planned to unseat him in 2019 have all lost power.
“Those who felt they made him President in 2015 & planned to ‘unmake’ him in 2019 have all lost power…; yet, PMB is still standing strong and will finish his 2nd term by His Grace”, he tweeted this morning.
In his earlier tweet, the minister congratulated Senator smart for his victory and commiserated with Senator Dino for the lost.
He said, “Congratulations to my friend and brother, Senator Smart Adeyemi. And commiserations to my friend and brother, Senator Dino Melaye”.
