The first female Senator from Kogi State, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been sworn in. 

Natasha is also the fourth female Senator in the 10th Upper Legislative Chamber

She is representing Kogi Central Senatorial District of Kogi State.

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.

This followed her presentation with the certificate of Return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the duly elected Senator for Kogi Central.

The Court of Appeal had on Tuesday affirmed Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan as the winner of the Kogi Central Senatorial District election.

The election petition tribunal had on September 6, affirmed Natasha as the duly elected Senator as it nullified Ohere’s victory citing inflated polling results in favor of Ohere in some units and deliberate undercounting against Akpoti-Uduaghan.
