UDAMA IGALA Association Worldwide extends its heartfelt congratulations to Barr Natasha Akpoti Uduaghan following her victorious outcome in the Appeal Court, where she was affirmed as the rightful elected Senator representing Kogi Central.
In an official press release issued on October 31, 2023, by the National Chairman of the Association, Mr. Kerimu Paul, and relayed through the National Secretary, Sani Michael Omakoji, it was emphasized that Natasha Akpoti’s success at the Appeal Court marks the dawning of a new era for Kogi Central.
The release stated that this illumination of “light” in Kogi Central is a promising sign that will extend its radiance across Kogi State on November 11, 2023, as the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate emerges as the new Governor-elect.
The press statement voiced the deep concern of UDAMA Igala Association and well-meaning Nigerians who observed the unfavorable events during the previous senatorial election, when Governor Yahaya Bello allegedly manipulated the results in favor of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Ohere.
The release expressed, “It was a cause for concern when Governor Yahaya Bello, against all odds, altered the results of the senatorial election to favour Ohere, even after the Tribunal had nullified the election in favor of Natasha Akpoti.”
The release continued by highlighting the stark contrast between the previous administration and the current political climate.
It recognized President Bola Asiwaju Tinubu’s stance on justice and fairness, stating, “There is no denying the fact that Governor Yahaya Bello could do and undo during the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime, but this President Bola Asiwaju Tinubu has proven to be different.”
In conclusion, the UDAMA Igala Association worldwide conveyed their solidarity and joy as they identified with Barr Natasha Akpoti Uduaghan in the wake of her Appeal Court victory.
They wished her success and fulfillment as she takes on her legislative responsibilities.
