Senate swears-in Christopher Ekpenyong

The Senate on Thursday swore-in Senator Christopher Ekpenyong of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to represent Akwa-Ibom North-West Senatorial District in the National Assembly.

The lawmaker took the oath administered by the Deputy Clerk of the Senate, Musa Abdullahi.

The lawmaker defeated Senator Godswill Akpabio of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the January 25, 2020 re-run election for Akwa Ibom North-West Senatorial District.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had earlier turned down the request of the APC to substitute its candidate, Akpabio, who is now the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
