Godswill Akpabio, a senator from Akwa Ibom State, has petitioned the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state over the results of the elections in the Akwa Ibom North-West District.
Mr Akpabio, a former governor of the state, represents the district in the Senate, on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC). He contested Saturday’s election, hoping to return to the Senate for a second term.
INEC on Sunday suspended the release of results of the election, saying there were “unresolved issues” with the votes from Essien Udim Local Government Area, where Mr Akpabio comes from.
