OrderPaperToday – Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu took his oath of office on Friday to represent Imo North senatorial district.
The senatorial election in February 2019 was declared inconclusive due to violence and irregularities.
Uwajumogu having emerged winner of the election, took to the court to demand the release of his certificate of return.
On the 6th of July, the Federal High Court, Abuja ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to release the certificate.
The electoral body eventually issued the certificate on Thursday in view of a protest led by the Senator.
Uwajumogu was sworn in by the Clerk of the Senate, Nelson Ayewoh.
