JUST IN: Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan Sworn-In As Senator

Nigeria’s Senate President, Godswill Akpabio has sworn in Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan as senator representing Kogi Central at the National Assembly.

Gatekeepers News reports that Akpoti was sworn in during the ongoing plenary.

This followed her presentation with Certificate of Return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the duly elected Senator for Kogi Central.

Akpoti-Uduaghan, who is elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), becomes the first female Senator from Kogi State.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, upheld Akpoti-Uduaghan as the duly elected candidate in the Kogi Central Senatorial Election held earlier in February.

The court dismissed the appeal filed by Abubakar Ohere of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for lacking in merit.

In September, the Kogi State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Lokoja had nullified the victory of Ohere as the winner of the Kogi Central Senatorial Election.

The court further declared Akpoti-Uduaghan as the actual winner of the February senatorial poll.

Though Ohere had headed to the appellate court to seek redress but the court further upheld Akpoti-Uduaghan as the winner of the poll.
