Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has congratulated Natasha Akpoti, as the Senator representing Kogi Central.
The Governor, who told State House correspondents that he had accepted the verdict of the Appeal Court that gave her the mandate, called on the people of Kogi to accept the verdict as well.
INEC declared Abubakar Ohere as the winner of the Kogi Central Senatorial District, and dissatisfied with the declaration, Natasha Akpoti contested it at the tribunal.
She won the case, but Abubakar Ohere appealed the ruling of the tribunal, which the Appeal Court eventual upheld.
