The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan has been sworn in by the Senate to serve as the senator for the Kogi Central senatorial district.
As of right now, Natasha is the 10th Upper Legislative Chamber’s fourth female senator and the first senator from Kogi State.
The oath was administered to her on Thursday on the floor of the upper legislative body by Senate Clerk Godswill Akpabio, the president of the Senate.
This came after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented her with the Certificate of Return designating her as the lawfully elected Senator for Kogi Central.
According to Clusterchannnel, Akpoti-Uduaghan was declared the winner of the Kogi central senatorial district election by the Court of Appeal on Tuesday.
On September 6, the election petition tribunal declared Natasha to be the legitimately elected senator and declared Ohere’s win to be void due to manipulated polling data that favored Ohere in some units and intentional undercounting against Akpoti-Uduaghan.
