I still haven't forgiven INEC - Oshiomhole

People’s Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker Dino Melaye has written to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) demanding the electoral body to maintain status quo.

In a letter written on his behalf by his lawyer, Ricky Tarfa & Co and signed by Rilwan I. Idris, Melaye told INEC that there was a pending suit before Justice Ekwo of the Federal High Court 5, Abuja.

The suit, according to the letter dated November 28, was accompanied by motions for an interim and interlocutory injunction restraining the Commission from proceeding with the supplementary elections of the Kogi West Senatorial District.
