KOGI: Senator Isah to challenge Court’s verdict on Akpoti

THE Senator representing Kogi East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Jibrin Isah-Echocho, has vowed to challenge the decision of the Kogi Election Petition Tribunal that nullified his victory and ordered a rerun in 94 polling units.

The embattled APC lawmaker said he disagreed with the judgement, hence his decision to appeal the outcome at the Appeal Court.

The Senator faulted the tribunal’s decision, citing an earlier judgement that forbids additional inclusion of polling units to the legally approved ones.

“The interpretation of the tribunal raises serious questions, which has prompted the seeking of the right interpretation through the appellate court.

Isah who is the chairman, Senate Committee on Customs, Excise and Tariff said he is determined to defend his electoral victory and uphold the integrity of the electoral process.

The Senator, however, appealed to his supporters to remain calm in the face of the situation, promising to exhaust every constitutional privilege available to protect the integrity of the electoral process.
