A witness, Godwin Afangideh, has presented a document before the national assembly elections petition tribunal in Akwa Ibom state, confirming that Senator Godswill Akpabio won the state northwest senatorial election, Nigeria News Live.
Counsel to the Peoples Democratic Party (People\'s Democratic Party), Solomon Umoh, SAN had given Afangideh a document presented by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to read to the tribunal, The Nation reports.
The document was an exhibit presented by INEC in a petition filed by Akpabio of the All Progressive Congress challenging the declaration of Christopher Ekpenyong of the People\'s Democratic Party over the election.
Afangide said “My Lord even from this document All Progressive Congress scored a total votes 61,329 and PDP scored 9,050 in Essien Udim local government area and it is recorded here.” Afangide had earlier tendered results collated from Wards across the local government area as given to him by the party agents which clearly showed that Senator Akpabio had won the election in his own local government area with a wide margin.
The witness expressed surprise at the voters’ register tendered in court and said it was different from the one that was used on election day. He confirmed that he had voted along with his family members.
According to Afangide, the elections in Essien Udim local government area were very peaceful as attested to by security agencies, local and foreign observers. Another witness, Chris Akpan, who was a ward Collation Agent told the Tribunal that the results that were declared by INEC in Uyo did not reflect collated results from the Units and Wards of the local government area.
