The elections petition tribunal sitting in Akwa Ibom has thrown out the Petition of Nsima Ekere of the All Progressives Congress (APC), declaring Gov. Udom Emmanuel as duly elected.
Ekere had challenged the outcome of the gubernatorial election won by the state governor last March.
In its ruling on Thursday, the Tribunal dismissed the petition, upholding the election as declared by Independent national Electoral Commission, INEC.
It however did not award any costs.
