Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Is­mail Mu­dashir

Sen­a­tor Ab­dul­salami Ohiare of Kogi Cen­tral Sen­a­to­rial Dis­trict has said that no­body can steal his man­date.

Sen­a­tor Ohiare, whose elec­tion was up­held by the Na­tional Assem­bly Elec­tion Pe­ti­tion Tri­bunal sit­ting in Lokoja on Mon­day, said the ju­di­ciary had reaf­firmed that the good peo­ple of Kogi Cen­tral freely and voted for him.

“When as a young civil ser­vant in the Fed­eral Cap­i­tal De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (FCDA) I was vic­tim­ized and dis­missed for be­ing bold enough to ex­pose my su­pe­ri­ors of cor­rupt prac­tices, I sought re­dress by su­ing the then gov­ern­ment and the ju­di­ciary stood by me and re­in­stated me back to work - This was un­der a

over­whelm­ingly mil­i­tary ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“I want to use this op­por­tu­nity to thank my teem­ing sup­port­ers and nu­mer­ous ad­mir­ers for their stead­fast­ness dur­ing the trial, and mag­nan­i­mously call on my op­po­nents to join hands with me to move our dear sen­a­to­rial dis­trict to the next pos­i­tive level, Mr Ohiare was quoted in a state­ment by his media aide, Mr Mo­hammed Sadiq.
