The Supreme court has upheld the elections of Governors Okezie Ipkeazu of Abia state and Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state.
In the ruling on Wednesday, the court said Governor Emmanuel won the lawfully cast votes, setting aside the earlier ruling of the two lower courts.
The Court also upheld Governor Udom's Appeal challenging the cancellation of the results of the elections held in 13 local governments.
In the ruling, the appeal of the Independent National Electoral Commission, challenging the
cancellation of election results in some local government areas, was also upheld. Reasons for verdict will be given on February 16th.
