Breaking: Kogi Central senator Natasha Akpoti takes the oath of office

The Senate has sworn in Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the senator representing Kogi Central senatorial district.

Natasha is now the first female Senator from Kogi State and the fourth female Senator in the 10th Upper Legislative Chamber

Senate President Godswill Akpabio directed the clerk of the senate to administer the oath to her on the floor of the upper legislative chamber on Thursday.

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

GISTS VILLA reports that the Court of Appeal affirmed Akpoti-Uduaghan as the winner of the Kogi central senatorial district election on Tuesday.

The election petition tribunal, on September 6, affirmed Natasha as the duly elected Senator as it nullified Ohere’s victory, citing inflated polling results in favor of Ohere in some units and deliberate undercounting against Akpoti-Uduaghan.
