Godswill Akpabio, a senator from Akwa Ibom State, has offered reasons why he pulled back his decision case from an Abuja high court.
Mr Akpabio, who challenged for re-appointment for a second term under the stage of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to speak to the Akwa Ibom North-West District, lost to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) hopeful, Chris Ekpenyong.
Mr Akpabio, a formal governor of Akwa Ibom, asserted triumph in the race and denounced the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of messing with the race result.
Mr Akpabio, acting against the tradition where wronged race washouts look for change at race council, recorded a claim in a high court in Abuja for “a legal survey for the issuance of a writ of mandamus, forbiddance, directive, and other revelatory reliefs against the respondent (INEC).” He acquired a disputable request which limited INEC from issuing a declaration of come back to his adversary,Mr Ekpenyong
Friday night, he pulled back the case from the high court so he could document his case at the race court on Monday.”I expected to pull back this other issue so it won’t finish up being a maltreatment of court process (to have a similar issue in a court and a council at the equivalent time).”I must recover my mandate,” he said.
