APC accuses Fayose of being mischievous

26 October 2015, 17:21

Uyo - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State of being mischievous in his comments on the judgment of the governorship election petition delivered  in the state, reports PM News.

The party described the comments credited to Fayose, accusing the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari of meddling in the judicial process as false, rascally inspired and maliciously intended.

Fayose had while reacting to the judgment of the tribunal, which ordered a re-run of the governorship election in 18 local government areas, accused Buhari and the APC of influencing the judgement.

But, the party in a statement by the state Publicity Secretary, Ita Awak, said contrary to the hypocritical posturing of Fayose, it is the PDP and Senator Godswill Akpabio’s puppet regime in Akwa Ibom that should be accused of unwholesomely meddling in the affairs of the tribunals.

The party added that no averagely intelligent person can conclude that the judgment handed down by the Justice Sadiq Umar-led panel is in favour of the APC in Akwa Ibom as the party’s prayer was for total annulment of the violent, irregular and unacceptably fraudulent governorship election of April 11, 2015.

The party wondered why Fayose and the PDP will not attack the judiciary when Justice Anunihu declared that it was legitimate for 205 519 voters in Akwa Ibom North West senatorial district to cast 444 505 vote for Godswill Akpabio, when successful accreditation was only 90 618 and failed accreditation stood at 114 901.
