The Abuja division of the Court of Appeal has set aside the judgment of the Federal High Court Abuja, removing Godswill Akpabio as the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District.

Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja had on September 22 asked INEC to reinstate Akpabio as APC’s candidate, being the candidate nominated by the party in the second primary of June 9.

However, a three-member panel of justices read by Justice Danlami Senchi yesterday held that Akpabio failed to file a proof of arguments within the time provided by the rules.

The panel further ruled that Akpabio, being a presidential aspirant of the APC, could not participate in the valid primary of the party held on May 27 and monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which produced Udom Ekpoudom as a candidate.
