Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

The Akwa Ibom State chap­ter of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has picked holes in the ver­dict of the Na­tional and State As­sem­bly Elec­tion Pe­ti­tion Tri­bunal, which up­held the vic­tory of former Gover­nor Godswill Ap­k­abio.

The APC State Chair­man, Dr Amadu At­tai, who ad­dressed jour­nal­ists in Abuja at the week­end, de­scribed the out­come of the var­i­ous pe­ti­tions filed by the party and its can­di­dates at the Akwa Ibom State Na­tional and State As­sem­bly Elec­tion Pe­ti­tion Tri­bunals as “whole­sale mis­car­riage of jus­tice.”

Ac­cord­ing to him, “Noth­ing drives this point more force­fully home than the con­tro­ver­sial de­ci­sion of the Jus­tice Goddy Anunihu-led Panel to dis­miss the pe­ti­tion.
