Court orders Senate President Saraki to swear-in Alfa as new Kogi East senator

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday, February 21, has asked Senator Atai Aidoko representing Kogi East senatorial district to vacate his seat at the National Assembly for Air Vice Marshal Isaac Alfa (rtd).

The court ruled that Alfa is the winner of the 2015 Kogi East senatorial seat and ordered his immediate swearing-in as the Kogi East senator by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Daily Trust reports that Justice Anwuli Chikere struck out the application by Senator Aidoko seeking for a review of the earlier judgement.

The judgement for Aidoko to vacate the senatorial seat for Alfa came two days to the 2019 presidential and National Assembly elections.
