INEC presents certificate of return to Cross Rivers senator-elect Agom

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Monday issued a Certificate of Return to the Senator-elect representing Cross River North Senatorial District, Jarigbe Agom, at the Abuja INEC Headquarters.

The certificate was presented by INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of its information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye.

INEC had earlier issued a Certificate of Return to Dr Stephen Odey after the December 5 by-election.

Both Jarigbe and Odey were contesting the Peoples Democratic Party ticket before the election.

But an appeal court suit No. CV/77/2020 brought about the issuance of Certificate of Return to Jarigbe.

The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal had declared Jarigbe as the duly nominated candidate of the PDP and the rightful winner of the election against Odey who was earlier declared winner by INEC and sworn in by the Senate.

The court further ordered INEC to immediately issue a Certificate of Return to Jarigbe and withdraw the one earlier issued to Odey.
