Tribunal Declares Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan as Winner of Kogi Central Senatorial Election

In a significant ruling, the National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal, located in Lokoja, has officially declared Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan as the rightful Senator representing the Kogi Central Senatorial District.

This decision overturns the previous declaration made by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which had initially declared Senator Abubakar Ohere as the winner of the election.

Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan had filed a petition with the tribunal, asserting her claim as the legitimate winner of the election.

Senator Ohere had contested her petition, arguing that it lacked merit. However, the tribunal, presided over by Justice K.A. Ojiako, has ruled in favor of Akpoti-Uduaghan, affirming the validity of her petition.

This historic decision makes Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan the first female Senator to represent the Kogi Central Senatorial District.

Further details on this development will be provided as they become available.
