“Smart Adeyemi’s case against me at the Tribunal sitting in Kogi has been struck out today. Case close. To God alone be the glory forevermore”, Melaye tweet indicates.
Melaye’s challenger and former occupant of his present seat, Adeyemi was once National President of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ). He has been elected twice (2003-2007 and 2007-2011) as Senator.
