BREAKING: Supreme Court affirms Umo Eno as Governor of Akwa Ibom State

The Supreme Court of Nigeria has affirmed the election of Umo Eno as Governor of Akwa Ibom State, thereby closing the disputes to his victory in the March 2023 polls.

The apex court dismissed appeals filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Young Progressives Party (YPP), and the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), each contesting Eno’s eligibility or the conduct of the election.

This ruling comes after the Court of Appeal had already struck out similar suits against Eno last year.

The petitioners, Bassey Albert Akpan of the YPP, Akanimo Udofia of the APC, and John Akpanudoedehe of the NNPP, had raised various concerns, including allegations of electoral malpractices and Eno’s qualification to hold office.
