Kogi East Senator Attai Aidoko last night denied news making the rounds that the Court of Appeal siting in Abuja sacked him over a pre-election matter.
The senator told our correspondent: “The news is fake. What happened in court today (Appeal Court -Abuja) is this: I was the first to approach the court for referral on whether it has jurisdiction and when the court ruled today, the judges said my application was not a constitutional one and that we should go back to the Federal High Court. They have not even gone into the matter.
“In any case, it’s a pre-election matter. There is nothing like that (declaring his seat vacant). The court has not given its judgment. It is completely fake news.
Senator Aidoko contested the Kogi East PDP primary along with AirVice Marshall Isaac Alfa and others.
He was declared winner. Alfa challenged the results and was sworn in as senator for a brief period. Aidoko upstaged him through a court judgment.
