The All Progressives Congress (APC), on Wednesday said it would appeal against the judgment of the governorship election petition tribunal in Akwa Ibom state.

Amadu Atai, state chairman of the party, disclosed this to journalists in Uyo, capital of the state.

Atai said the party was expecting outright cancellation of the governorship election since it nullified the elections in 18 out of the 31 local government areas.

“The tribunal has cancelled the governorship elections in 18 local government areas and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct elections in the affected areas,” he said.

“But we are going to file an appeal because we expected cancellation in more local government areas where discrepancies were pervasive.”

Meanwhile, Paul Ekpo, chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, said the judgement was confusing.

“The judgment is very confusing except that my governor, who had won the election overwhelmingly in the state, still remains the governor,” he said.

Ekpo added that his party will review the tribunal’s ruling.
