Senator Emmanuel Udende who represents Benue North East senatorial district at the National Assembly on Saturday assured his constituents that his election would be consolidated at the Court of Appeal.
Udende gave the assurance while reacting to Friday’s judgment of the National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Makurdi, which upturned his victory of the February 25, 2023 elections.
The senator drew the attention of his constituents to the minority judgment which upheld his election as he noted that the courts of appeal will validate the judicial pronouncement of the judge.
He said his legal team has concluded preparations to file an appeal and urged for calm for the legal process to run its democratic course.
Udende through his Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Jerry Iorngaem, stressed that he won the election with majority of lawful votes cast and fulfilled all other requirements hence he was declared winner and subsequently inaugurated as member of the red Chambers of the National Assembly to represent the people of the Benue North East senatorial district.
