Court Of Appeal Nullifies Akwa Ibom Gubernatorial Election In All LGA’s, Orders Re-run



A five-man panel of the Court of Appeal in Abuja has dismissed the appeal filed by Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel, challenging the October 21, 2015 judgment of the state Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which nullified his election in 18 out of the 31 Local Government Areas in the state.

Still being awaited is the judgment on the appeal by the All Progressives Congress’ candidate, Mr. Okon Umana, asking for an order nullifying the election conducted on April 11, 2015 in the entire 31 local government areas.

Earlier the appeal court had dismissed an interlocutory appeal by Emmanuel challenging the competence of Umana and the APC to file petition challenging the outcome of the April 11 poll at the tribunal.
