a Court of Appeal has upheld the election of Senate Minority Leader, Godswill (7)

Akpabio’s victory was challenged by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Akwa Ibom North-west senatorial district, Chief Inebehe Okori.

Okori had approached the election tribunal challenging the conduct of the senatorial election and declaration of Akpabio as winner of the poll. But he lost at the election tribunal.

The tribunal led by Justice Goddy Anunihu, in its ruling said there was nothing legally wrong with two hundred and five thousand, five hundred and nineteen accredited voters casting four hundred and forty-four thousand, five hundred and five votes which were declared for former governor Akpabio.

The three man panel comprised of chairman, Justice Goddy Anunihu, Justice A. O. Adebusoye and Justice A. M. Lamido.
