BREAKING: Court Orders INEC to Declare Akpabio as APC Senatorial Candidate

A Federal High Court in Abuja has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission – INEC to declare Godswill Akpabio as Senatorial candidate in Akwa-Ibom North Central.

The court did not only order INEC to accept but to also publish Akpabio’s name as the authentic candidate of the All-Progressives Congress – APC in the senatorial district in the 2023 election, ENigeria Newspaper reports.

Justice Emeka Nwite, in a judgment on Thursday, held that INEC acted illegally for refusing to accept and publish the Senator’s name even when it was sent to it by the APC as its candidate.
Details soon.
