The controversial Senator Dino Melaye has lost his bid at the Appeal Court to uphold his mandate as a Senator on the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The appeal court today affirmed the decision of the election petition tribunal which had earlier sacked Dino Melaye as senator representing Kogi West.
The court, however, ordered the conduct of a fresh election in Kogi West senatorial district.
However, Senator Dino Melaye in a swift reaction to the court of appeal judgment urged his people and supports not to be troubled.
According a statement he personlly signed he said: “Let your hearts not be troubled, believe in God believe also His prophets.
“Court judgement is human judgment, I believe in divine I mean God’s judgment. It is absolutely well. No worries, no tension, no pains. I celebrate God for he is always a good God. At the end His name will be glorified. He is not a man that He will lie. I’m a winner every time. There is a final verdict and it is the verdict of God. Peace peace peace.
“Today, I speak over my life and my household that the peace of God that surpasses understanding will garrison across our hearts. I am not shaken nor moved. I trust in God completely. I lean not on my own understanding; I acknowledge Him in all my ways, and I am directed of the Lord and led by the Spirit. I see my way through; I walk a path devoid of pitfalls. I look to the Lord my God, and I will not see shame. I am delivered from destruction and dereliction.
“I am saved to serve and strengthened for life. God is merciful to me, and I have received grace of the Lord my God. I have favor. Nothing is against me.
Men are favorably disposed to me in every situation. I am accepted and not rejected. Nothing blocks my path to success; I am not a failure, and greatness is attracted to me.
I activate the will of the Father and insist that today is the day of His power. I am willing; God is at work, in me, to will and to do all His good pleasure. I win always.
My prayers are answered, and my requests are granted. “My eye is single, and my body is full of light”. Sorrows and tears are far from me. I have peace; my struggles cease; my frustrations, fears, and frailties give way; and I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. My tomorrow is greater and better than my yesterday.
I shine like the star that I am. I am blessed with every blessing heavenly, in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I am blessed with the blessing of the sand and stars. I increase on all sides. In Jesus’s name, I believe and say amen.
