Senator Victor Umeh sworn-in @Senate

Finally the Senate on Thursday, January 18, 2017 made another history by swearing-in Senator Victor Umeh if All Progressive  Grand Alliance (APGA) as a member of the Senate, reports ITRealms.

This followed his election last Saturday after a rerun as the representative of Anambra Central Senatorial District in Anambra State.

Umeh currently is the only member of APGA in the Nigeria Senate.

His emergence followed defeat of 13 other contenders to clinch the seat, for a total of 64,879 votes out of estimated 67,000 votes cast in the seven local government areas that made up the zone.

That is a margin of over 95 per cent over his opponents.

The Anambra Central Senatorial District, ITRealms recalled had been without a senator since 2015 when the Court of Appeal sitting in Enugu sacked Uche Ekwunife and asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct rerun election within 90 days.

The court also disqualified the People's Democratic Party and Mrs. Ekwunife from participating in the rerun.
