Senate has sworn In Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan as Kogi Central Senator.
Glamtush reports that the Senate on Thursday, swore 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.
This followed her presentation with Certificate of Return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the duly elected Senator for Kogi Central.
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.
Recall that 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.
The court dismissed the appeal filed by Abubakar Ohere of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for lacking in merit.
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.
