Supreme Court Returns Akpabio To Senatorial Race

The apex court gave the verdict in a judgment on Friday.

Recall that the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had ordered his removal on the grounds that he had already contested for the presidential ticket of the APC.

Subsequently, the apex court quashed the nomination of Mr. Udom Ekpoudom whose name APC uploaded on the website of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Recall that Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High court had held that since the name of Akpabio was forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission by the APC, the electoral umpire cannot refuse to accept and publish his name as one of the senatorial contenders.
