Tribunal judge has ordered a re-run in 18 out of the 31 local government areas in the state.

INEC declared PDP candidate (Udom) winner, with a total no of 996,071 votes from the 31 Local Government Areas in the State.

APC candidate (Umana) polled 89,865 votes.

Tribunal judge upheld elections in 13 local government areas.

Tribunal judge upheld that, Gov. Udom Emmanuel (PDP) has a total valid votes of 495, 204

Mr. Umana Umana (APC) candidate has a total valid votes of 37,572

Total number of accredited voters in the 18 cancelled local government areas is 561,604.



APC candidate (Umana) needs to poll at least 520,000 votes out of the 561,604 to defeat  PDP candidate (Udom Emmanuel). Practically it is unachievable.

Akwa Ibom youths have urged Gov. Udom Emmanuel to immediately communicate with INEC to go ahead and conduct the rerun  within 90 days.

It is clear that APC will appeal Udom’s victory, and I doubt if the appellate court will upturn this judgment.
