APC senatorial candidate appeals Akpabio’s tribunal victory

23 November 2015, 16:04

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate in Akwa Ibom North-west senatorial district, Inibehe Okori, has appealed the decisions of Akwa Ibom State National Election Petitions Tribunal, which upheld the victory of the former governor of the state, Godswill Akpabio as the senator representing the zone, reports Punch.

In a notice of appeal filed before the Court of Appeal in Abuja, Okori said it was regrettable that despite the alleged cases of over voting, the tribunal still ruled that Akpabio’s election was conducted in substantial compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act.

Okori submitted that being dissatisfied with the decision of the Justice Goddy Anunihu-led tribunal on October 14, he sought to appeal the judgment of the tribunal.

He alleged that the learned justices of the trial tribunal erred in law by holding that the third respondent sponsored the first respondent for the National Assembly election in Akwa Ibom Northwest Senatorial District.
