The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has sworn in Mr Abdullahi Danbaba as the senator representing Sokoto South Senatorial District in the National Assembly.
Senator Danbaba was inaugurated at about 10:55 am shortly after the adoption of the votes and proceedings of Tuesday’s plenary.
The Clerk of Senate, Nelson Ayewoh, administered the oath on the lawmaker.
Thereafter, the Senate President directed the Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, to “give him a befitting seat”.
This comes three weeks after the Court of Appeal in Sokoto returned Senator Danbaba of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the lawmaker representing Sokoto South in the National Assembly.
In his judgement on October 30, Justice Fredrick Oho set aside the judgment of the Sokoto State Election Petitions Tribunal which dismissed the appellant’s petition in favour of the respondent, Abubakar Shehu-Tambuwal of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
