An Appeal Court has nullified the entire governorship election held in Akwa Ibom State on 11 April, purportedly won by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Governor Udom Emmanuel.
The decision was handed over this afternoon in the cross appeal filed by the candidate of the APC, Umana Okon Umana and the appeal by Emmanuel.
The Governorship election tribunal had initially cancelled the election in 18 of the councils in the state and called for a rerun. But the APC felt dissatisfied and filed an appeal, praying for the cancellation of the entire poll.
The court ordered fresh election in 90 days.
