Senate President Ahmad Lawan on Wednesday swore in Hon. Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe as Senator representing Cross River North Senatorial District.

Senator Jarigbe’s swearing-in followed a ruling of the Court of Appeal that declared him the validly elected candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the primaries.

The court which sacked Stephen Odey, said Jarigbe was the lawful candidate of the PDP in the December 5th, 2020 bye-election for the seat.

The three-man panel presided by Hon. Justice Chioma Nwosu also invalidated the certificate of return earlier issued to Odey by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC and directed that it be withdrawn.

Clerk to the Senate, Ibrahim El-Ladan administered the oath of office and oath of allegiance on Jarigbe following a directive by Lawan.
