By Abubakar Yunusa


Comrade Usman Okai, the immediate candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for Dekina/Bassa federal constituency, has congratulated Chief Barrister Natasha Akpoti Uduaghan on her victory at the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday in Lokoja.

The Kogi State Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday nullified the victory of Senator Abubakar Ohere as the winner of the Kogi Central Senatorial election.

The Tribunal Chairman, Justice K. A. Orjiako, who read the unanimous judgment of the 3-man panel, stated that Ohere’s results were inflated in 9 polling units of Ajaokuta LGA, while Natasha’s results were intentionally reduced in 9 of the same polling units by INEC. Additionally, results from 3 other polling units were deliberately not entered for Natasha in the same LGA.

“With the return of the mandate, the people will truly get a true representative. Undaunted by all of that, you ran a clean, peaceful, issues-based campaign. You were, by far, the most popular and most qualified of the Senate candidates, hence your election. You truly deserved your victory as declared by the Tribunal today.

“The path is now clear for focused piloting and representing the good people of Kogi Central at the upper chamber, piloting their affairs to the much-expected higher levels.

“Hearty congratulations to all and sundry,” he said.
