Kogi senatorial rerun and other ethical issues


On November 17, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared the second Kogi West senatorial election rerun between mainly Dino Melaye and Smart Adeyemi inconclusive. The courts had earlier voided Sen Melaye’s victory in last February’s senatorial race, and ordered a rerun. It is this rerun that has crashed into a ditch, leading to a court order for a second rerun. There will probably not be a third rerun ordered by INEC, for the second rerun, which was conducted at the same time as the November 16 governorship poll, witnessed unprecedented projection of violence and shocking display of lawlessness that virtually indicated what and who the votes were meant to deliver. A third rerun would be scandalous, except ordered again by the courts.
