OrderPaperToday – A Federal High Court in Lokoja, has declared Atai Aidoko the authentic PDP senatorial candidate of Kogi East for the 2019 election.

It is worthy to note that asides the inconclusive status of the senatorial election that took place on the 23rd of February, 2019, the candidature for the PDP has been contentious.

The party had given the ticket to the incumbent Senator, Atai Aidoko but his serial contender, Isaac Alfa took the case to court on the authentic candidate for the election.

Delivering his judgment on Friday, the Judge, Justice D. U. Okorowo dismissed the case brought before it by Alfa.

The case was initially at the Federal High Court in Abuja but was transferred via an application to Lokoja, Kogi state.

After listening to the submission of both counsels to the Appellant and respondent, Okorowo set aside the case over “lack of merit.”

It would be recalled that Alfa and Aidoko have been in a battle for the Kogi East seat in the 8th Senate of which the last ruling was in favour of the incumbent.
