  • PublishedNovember 2, 2023

The Senate has sworn in Senator-elect for Kogi Central Senatorial District, Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, as a member of the 10th Senate.

She was administered the oath by the Clerk of the Senate at exactly 11:41 a.m on Thursday.

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.

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.
