Barister Leo Ekpeyong was reacting to the Akwa Ibom PDP's comments following the recent ruling of Justice Okon Abang of the federal high court, Abuja on the defection of Senator Godswill Akpabio from the party.
The Federal High Court, Abuja, has admitted in evidence, the final account tendered by Olisa Metuh, former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday, May 20, said that if the panel at the election tribunal is impartial in the court proceedings, its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will emerge victorious.
The former Senate minority leader, Godswill Akpabio had announced on August 8, 2018, that he was defecting from the PDP to the APC in pursuit of national interest and to stem the tide of defections in the National Assembly.
As the battle for the National Assembly leadership heats up, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is reportedly making moves to influence the outcome of the Senate election.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has withdrawn 25 Certificates-of-Return issued to some candidates that won during the 2019 general elections, following court orders.
