THE candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) senatorial election held on February 25, 2023, Ireti Kingibe, has been declared the winner.
Ireti defeated the current senator representing the FCT, Philip Aduda of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to win the FCT election.
She got 202,175 votes, while Aduda got 100,544 votes.
The result was announced by the returning officer of the election, Sani Saka, in Abuja on Tuesday evening.
Ireti was initially leading before INEC cancelled results from the Bwari Area Council for over-voting.
The issue was, however, corrected on Tuesday.
