Akpabio’s APC senatorial candidacy stopped by Appeal Court

Godswill Akpabio has been stopped from parading himself as the All Progressives Congress senatorial candidate for Akwa-Ibom North/West District in the 2023 General Elections.

A court of Appeal delivered the judgment on Monday evening in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

Recall that the Federal High Court had ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to recognise the former Minister of Niger Delta, as the APC Senatorial candidate.

Justice Emeka Nwite, the lead judge then held that INEC acted illegally by refusing to accept and publish Akpabio’s name after it was sent by APC, following which it ordered INEC to accept and publish Akpabio’s name as APC senatorial candidate for Akwa Ibom North/West senatorial district in 2023.

However, the appellate court has set aside that judgment.
