Kogi State Governorship candidate of the African Democractic Congress (ADC) Hon. Leke Abejide bas described the declaration of Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan as the bonafide elected Senator of Kogi Central Senatorial District as a triumph of light over forces of darkness.
Abejide while reacting to Mrs Akpoti-Uduaghan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) victory at the Court of Appeal over All Progressives Congress’s (APC) Abubakar Ohere on Tuesday said no matter how long falsehood travel, the truth will catch up with it one day.
He also eulogized the judiciary for rekindling the hope of Kogi people, especially the Kogi Central electorate who were robbed by agent of violence and electoral manipulators.
“The world watched as your clear victory was brazenly upturned by desperate forces of darkness. Even when you won four out of five Local Government Areas in the Central Senatorial District, they manipulated the system believing that they can get away with the broad daylight robbery.
“But thanks to your doggedness, and the resolve of the judiciary to do justice without fear of favor, you have ended the era of electoral impunity in Kogi State today.”
“Your resolve and determination to go all head long has shown us that will can challenge Kogi common predator.
“This victory is sweet and I urge you to savour it, especially coming at a time like this. You fought a long battle.”
