The Senate President, Dr. Ahmad Lawan, has sworn in Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe as Senator to represent Cross River North Senatorial District.

Senator Jarigbe took the oath of office at the beginning of plenary on Wednesday.

The oath of office was administered by the Clerk of the Senate, Barr. Ibrahim Dauda El-ladan.

His swearing-in comes on the heels of a ruling by the Court of Appeal sitting in Calabar on July 30, 2021, which declared Jarigbe winner of the December 5th, 2020, Cross River North Senatorial By-election.

Accordingly, the electoral body directed that the certificate of return be immediately withdrawn.
