Breaking News: Appeal Court nullifies Akwa Ibom governorship election
The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has nullified the outcome of the April 11 governorship election in Akwa Ibom State.
The court in the lead judgment delâ€Živered by Justice Adefunke Okojie, held that the Akwa Ibom State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal erred when it voided election results from only 18 Local Government Areas â€Žin the state.
â€ŽConsequently, a unanimous judgment, a five-man panel of Justices of the â€Žappellate court, voided the Certificate of Return that was issued to Governor Emmanuel Udom â€Žby the Independent National Electoral Commission.
It ordered that a fresh governorship election should be conducted in the state within 90 days.
