Supreme Court on Friday, declared and restored former Akwa Ibom State governor, Godswill Obot Akpabio as the senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for Akwa Ibom North Senatorial District.
Justice Ibrahim Saulawa, on Friday, in a unanimous judgment he delivered, upheld the ruling of the Federal High Court in Abuja, which in September last year granted verdict in favour of Akpabio, the immediate past Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
Justice Saulawa after reviewing the arguments canvassed by Akpabio said that his appeal was meritorious and allowed.
Recall that the Court of Appeal had on November 14, 2022, delivered judgement and voided his candidacy and overturned his victory at the APC Senatorial primaries.
