Appeal Court Sacks Senator Attai Aidoko

Justice Abdul Aboki of Court of Appeal, Abuja on Monday sacked Senator representing the Kogi East senatorial District, Attai Aidoko on a pre-election matter instituted before the appellate court.

Senator Attai Aidoko and AVM Isaac Alfa, have been in court claiming to be the legal occupants of the Senatorial seat.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had on July 24, 2016 declared a former Chief of Air Staff and a member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), retired Air Vice-Marshal Isaac Alfa, as winner of the re-run election held at the senatorial district.
According to INEC, Alfa scored 57, 575 votes to defeat five other candidates.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) did not participate in the election due to an Appeal Court judgment which prevented the party from fielding a candidate.
