In a statement signed by the Chairman of its Information and Voter Committee, Mr. Festus Okoye, on Monday, October 21, 2019, INEC said the Kogi west senatorial district election will hold on November 16.

The two candidates contesting for the Kogi west senatorial district election are Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Meanwhile, Melaye has insisted he will defeat Smart Adeyemi in the scheduled Kogi west senatorial election.
