The Senate on Wednesday swore in Isaac Alfa, as the substantive senator representing Kogi East district.
Oath taking for the new senator was the first activity of the Senate for the day. The development follows a Supreme Court judgment which affirms Mr Alfa as the senator representing the district. With this, Atai Aidoko Ali, who has been representing the district until the oath-taking, ceases to be a senator.
Mr Alfa, at different times, accused Mr Saraki of partiality in his refusal to obey court order affirming him. Addressing journalists in February, the former Chief of Air Staff made public his plight.
“The Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, decides which Court orders to obey and which ones to disobey.
“In my case, the Federal High Court ordered on the 13th June, 2018 that I should be sworn in as Senator representing Kogi East Senatorial District.”
“This order was affirmed by the Supreme Court, yet the leadership of the National Assembly refused to obey.”
