The Peoples Democratic Party in Akwa Ibom #State is definitely fighting for their survival from all angles and it is not surprising that they are bent on delaying if not ruining the inevitable judgement of the election #tribunal in the state ruling that the April 11, 2015 election in the state was, as already exposed by the Independent National Electoral Commission Smart Card Reading Machines, a sham.
The Akwa Ibom State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which is currently sitting in Abuja has fixed June 24 for ruling on an application seeking the return of the tribunal to Uyo, the state capital.
The Justice Sadiq Umar-led three-man panel of the tribunal on Monday fixed the date for the ruling on the application for relocation after hearing lawyers to the parties to the petition.
The Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate in the April 11, 2015 governorship election, Udom Emmanuel, whose victory at the poll is being challenged at the tribunal, had through an application filed on June 7, 2015 prayed the tribunal to return to Uyo where it held its inaugural sitting before the decision to relocate it to Abuja.
Emmanuel’s victory at the poll is being challenged by the All Progressives Congress and its candidate in the election, Umana Umana. Emmanuel, the #PDP, the Independent National Electoral Commission, the Akwa Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner and the Nigeria Police Force are the five respondents to the petition.
