Former Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio has been disqualified by the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja from contesting as All Progressives Congress senatorial candidate representing Akwa-Ibom North/West District in the 2023 polls.

A three-member panel of justices read by Justice Danlami Senchi on Monday, November 14, 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.

Recall that Justice Emeka Nwite of a Federal High Court in Abuja had on September 22 asked INEC to reinstate Senator Akpabio as APC’s candidate, being the candidate nominated by the party in the second primary of June 9. The lower court had directed that INEC accepts the former Minister of Niger Delta as the APC flagbearer.

The court also ordered that INEC publish Akpabio’s name as APC senatorial candidate for Akwa Ibom North/West senatorial district in 2023, stating that the Commission acted illegally by refusing to accept and publish the former governor’s name when it was submitted to it by the APC as its candidate.

The High court held that Akpabio was validly nominated as the Akwa – Ibom North/West Senatorial District candidate of the APC from the primary conducted by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) on June 9, 2022.

The trial Judge faulted INEC for electing to monitor the May 27 primary, conducted by an illegal faction of the party led by Augustine Ekanem as against the June 9 primary authorized conducted by the APC NWC.
