APC faults petition tribunal over Akpabio


THE All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akwa Ibom State yesterday faulted the decision by the Justice Goddy Anunihu-led election petition tribunal which upheld the election of Senator Godswill Akpabio.

APC’s Chairman in the state, Mr Amadu Attai who addressed reporters in Abuja disclosed that the party’s candidate for the Akwa Ibom North West senatorial district, Chief Inibehe Okori, will launch an appeal the tribunal’s verdict.

Flanked by chieftains of the party, he described the verdict as well as other verdicts so far delivered by the Anunihu-led panel on various petitions on elective positions in the state as a clear case of miscarriage of justice.

Alleging that members of the panel had been compromised by both Governor Udom Emmanuel and Akpabio, he said it was unfortunate that the image of the judiciary has been dragged in the mud as far as the handling of election petitions are concerned in Akwa Ibom state.
