The presidential standard bearer of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has congratulated the female Senator-elect of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), who won the seat under the party’s platform, Ireti Kingibe.
Naija News reported that Kingibe was part of the Senators-elect who received their Certificates of Return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday.
