APC Withdraws From Akwa Ibom LG Election

Five months to the conduct of the local government election in Akwa Ibom State, crisis has started to evolve as the leading opposition party in the state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has withdrawn from the election.
Accordingly, the party said it had instructed its team of lawyers to institute legal action in a competent court of law against the state electoral umpire, the Akwa Ibom State Independent Electoral Commission (AKISIEC).

The Chairman of AKISIEC, Mrs. Gloria Ukpong had a meeting recently attended by chairmen and secretaries of no fewer than 20 of the registered political parties in the state unfolded plans to conduct the council poll fixed for November 11, 2017.

For two years now, the 31 councils in the state are being managed by caretaker committee members appointed by the ruling party in the state, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

But the Publicity Secretary of the APC, Edet Bassey, in a statement released in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital claimed lack of trust and confidence alleging that the State Electoral body was not committed to a free, fair, and transparent poll.
