All Progressive Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in the just concluded election in Akwa Ibom State Obong Nsima Ekere has described as electoral fraud the recent judgement by the appeal court this week which upheld the victory of Governor Udom Emmanuel as governor of Akwa Ibom
In his twitter handle, Nsima was quoted as saying :
The allure of electoral fraud for attaining political power is becoming increasingly fuelled by the apparent legal propensity of the Judiciary to overlook these wrongs using technicalities, difficult to comprehend by those schooled in the jurisprudence of substantial justice
Meanwhile, Hon. Emmanuel Ukpong-udo, Member representing Ikono-Ini Federal Constituency. and Deputy Chairman, House Of Rep. Committee on Interior congratulates Governor Udom Emmanuel on the Appeal Court ruling as the Governor of Akwa Ibom
In his twitter handle, Ukpong-udo was quoted as saying :
It is now clear that the wish of the #AkwaIbom people is the will of God for the State. On behalf of myself, family and Ikono/Ini Federal Constituency, I hereby congratulate my Governor @MrUdomEmmanuel on the Appeal Court ruling.
