The candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), in the November 11 governorship election in Kogi State, Alhaji Muritala Yakubu Ajaka has congratulated Senator Natasha Akpoti -Uduaghan on her victory at the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja .
Ajaka, said her declaration by the Court as the winner of the Kogi Central senatorial seat is a triumph of democracy over forces of anarchy in Kogi State .
Ajaka stated this on Tuesday while reacting to Mrs Akpoti-Uduaghan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) victory at the Court of Appeal over Abubakar Sadiq Ohere of the APC.
Ajaka’s reaction was contained in a statement signed by Faruk Adejoh-Audu, Director Communications,
Muri/Sam Gubernatorial Campaign Council .
“Once more, the judiciary had rekindled hope that electoral victory procured through violence and manipulation can only be temporary.
“The world watched as your clear victory was brazenly upturned by desperate forces of anarchy even when you won four out of five Local Government Areas in the Central Senatorial District believing that they can get away with the broad daylight heist.
“But thanks to your indefatigability and the resolve of the judiciary to do justice without fear or favor, you have ended the era of electoral impunity in Kogi State today,” Ajaka said.
Ajaka said the feat achieved by Mrs Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan has further ” emboldened him in his resolve to vanquish the same undemocratic forces who have reduced elections in Kogi State to bloodletting and manipulation.”. (vitalnewsngr.com)
