Akwa Ibom Govt. Says Reports On Supreme Court Judgment Is False

Akwa Ibom

Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has distanced himself from an online publication that the Supreme Court has upheld his election, describing it as blackmail.

The Attorney-General of the Akwa Ibom State, Uwem Nwoko, said that the Governor has absolute confidence in the judiciary and would not do anything that would bring its integrity into disrepute.
While describing the said report as false, misleading and utterly mischievous, Nwoko explained that the Governor had just filed his appellant brief last Friday and the respondents were yet to file their own briefs.
He added that until the briefs are fully exchanged and the case is heard, judgment cannot be delivered.
The Appeal Court, Abuja division had on October 21 2015, nullified the election of Governor Emmanuel Udom.
