The Supreme Court in Abuja has upheld the election of Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state.

The apex court in a judgment delivered on Wednesday December 18th, said the case filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) lacked merit.

The APC candidate Obong Nsima Ekere, in the March 9 governorship election had challenged the victory of Emmanuel, who was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In a judgement delivered by Justice Mary Odili, the court says Ekere’s “appeal lacks merit and its accordingly dismissed.”
