Defeated Senator Akpabio Withdraws Suit Against INEC

Former Senate Minority Leader, Mr. Godswill Akpabio, on Friday, withdrew the suit he filed to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from issuing Certificate of Return to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chris Ekpenyong, who defeated him in the February 23 Senatorial election.

Akpabio who is currently representing Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District, lost his re-election bid, after the electoral body, declared erstwhile Deputy Governor of the state, Mr Ekpenyong, as winner of the seat.

INEC, in the result that was announced by the Returning Officer, Prof. Peter Oban, declared that Mr Akpabio who contested on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, polled 83,158 votes, while the PDP candidate, Ekpenyong, garnered 118,215 votes, though the commission cancelled result from Obot Akara area of the constituency.

Akpabio who was a former governor of the state that entered the Senate with the ticket of the PDP before he defected to the ruling APC, had before the result was announcement, petitioned the electoral body, alleging moves by the Akwa Ibom Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, to validate the voided results.
