Emmanuel Udom Should Step Down- APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday asked Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel to step down, saying that his government is confronted with a legitimacy crisis.

Hailing the verdict on the re-run poll in 18 of 31 local governments, the party said the tribunal was irked by the colossal fraud that characterized the governorship election.

APC National Deputy Chairman (South) Mr. Segun Oni said the position of the party is that the governor should vacate office because he did not meet the criteria victory at the poll. He said it is now evident that none of the candidates met the criterion of spread as stipulated by the constitution.

Also, APC candidate Umana Okon Umana, hailed the judgment, saying it has vindicated his position that the poll was a charade and an assault on the electoral principle.

He said: “We welcome the judgment. It has vindicated our stand that the governorship election was characterized by fraud, rigging and other malpractices.”
