Arise Television co-host, Rufai Oseni has shared a word of advice with Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan after she was affirmed as the dul elected Senator for Kogi Central senatorial district of Kogi State.

Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, October 31 in its ruling affirmed the judgment of the Kogi State National/State Assembly election petitions tribunal, which earlier pronounced Akpoti-Uduaghan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the rightful winner of the February 25 National Assembly elections instead of Abubakar Sadiku-Ohere of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Analyzing her victory on the morning show on Wednesday, November 1, he advised the affirmation by the Appeal Court must be a "turning point for the people of Kogi". He also urged her to "ensure they(citizens) get the very best".

"The word I will have for Natasha is now you have the chance the lead the people, you've always wanted this. Let this be a turning point for the people of Kogi Central. Do your utmost to ensure they get the very best. Do not let them down, do not lord over them, do not feel that you have it all or know it all," he said.

"We in the media here will be ready to support you when you do well and sing praises and also the same measure we do when you do well is the same way we will criticize you when you don't do well, we will tell you pump and plain."
