Abuja - The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will soon meet to deliberate and decide on the way forward over the Supreme Court rulings on governorship elections. 

Chairman of the party, John Oyegun disclosed this on Thursday when he met party leaders from Akwa Ibom State over the recent Supreme Court judgement on the disputed governorship election in the state.

He said the date for the meeting would be announced after the apex court gives its reasons for the decisions in Akwa Ibom and other states.

He said what is paramount now for the party is how to move forward on the situation that confronts it.

Speaking earlier, the candidate of party in the Akwa-Ibom governorship election, Umana Umana, decried the judgment in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor Udom Emmanuel.

According to Umana, local and international election monitors, including the United States Embassy and the European Union (EU) and the Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) reached independent conclusions that the Akwa Ibom elections were marred by widespread irregularities and violence.
