Senator representing the Benue North East, Senator Emmanuel Udende, has assured his constituents that his election would be consolidated at the Court of Appeal.

In a statement signed by Jerry Iorngaem,Special adviser Media and publicity for Sen. Emmanuel M. Udende, Senator Udende assured that the judgement of the National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting at Makurdi which claimed to have upturned his victory on the 25th February, 2023 will be reversed.

He said his legal team has concluded preparations to file an appeal and urged for calm as the legal process which he said was part of democracy runs its course.

Senator Udende stressed that he won the election with majority of lawful votes cast and fulfilled all other requirements hence he was declared victor and subsequently inaugurated as member of the red Chambers of the National Assembly to represent the good people of the Benue North East Senatorial District.

He enjoined his constituents not to be shaken by the judgement of the tribunal yesterday as it remains the court of first instance whose judgement was subject to appeal which he was sure would nullify it and consolidate his victory.

Senator Udende also assured that by law he would remain in the Senate until the conclusion of the legal process.
