Senator Dino Melaye Shares Video Of Supreme Court Nullifying Presidential Election In Kenya

Reactions have started following the most recent social media post made by former Kogi lawmaker Senator Dino Melaye, in which he shared a video from a historic court decision that was given in Kenya several years ago. As Nigeria braces itself for the legal battle that is set to begin, over the outcome of the presidential elections conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on the 25th of February, reactions have started following the post.

Recall that in September 2017, a 6-member panel of Kenya Supreme Court Justices, ruled that the country electoral umpire had violated its own constitutional requirements for electronic transmission of voting results, leading to the alleged victory of incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta. The ruling led to the annulment of the election.

Interesting enough, the court mandated a new election within 60 days of invalidating the first. President Kenyatta ultimately fell short in the polls to Raila Odinga, his closest competitor.


The world is now watching the Nigerian judiciary, to see how it will handle the petitions against the results of the presidential election held two weeks ago, according to Melaye, a spokesman for the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, who posted a video of the historic court decision on Twitter.
