The Senator representing the Kogi Central Senatorial district, Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan has disclosed the reason behind the appointment of 100 constituency aides from her district.

Speaking on Friday in a statement through her Chief Press Secretary, Arogbonlo Israel, the senator noted that the appointments were imperative to “bolster our representation.”

The appointees, drawn from across 57 wards in the district, will also be receiving monthly salaries till the end of her tenure at the National Assembly.

The senator, under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, said, “As the Senator for Kogi Central District, I felt it was important to enlist the support of 100 energetic individuals from all 57 wards of Kogi Central to bolster our representation.

“These individuals, comprising people of all ages and from various professionals and artisan backgrounds, not only cover the geographical expanse of our communities but also bring diverse skill sets.

“They will receive a monthly salary for the duration of my tenure as their senator in the National Assembly, with the first salary to be disbursed on June 30, 2024.”

In September last year, the Kogi State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Lokoja, the state capital, nullified the victory of Senator Abubakar Ohere of the All Progressives Congress.

Consequent upon this, Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, supervised Akpoti-Uduaghan’s oath of office during plenary on Thursday, November 2, 2023.
