The All Progressive Congress, APC in has said it in 26 out of the 31 in the state in the last weekend’s gubernatorial and state Assembly.

The party also rejected the result of the election as announced by INEC which declared Governor Udom Emmanuel of the PDP to be the winner after he defeated Obong Nsima Ekere of the APC.

State chairman of the party Mr Ini Okopido told a press conference in Uyo that the party in 26 of the state but was denied by INEC in conspiracy with the PDP.

Results he said from the field showed that the party won in most polling units in the state as reflected by the support the party enjoyed during the campaigns.

“The result of the governorship and state House of Assembly elections in the state as obtained from our agents across the state clearly shows that the APC won in 26 out of the 31 of the state.

“That closeness was even possible because of the amount of underhanded tactics of the PDP, multiple voting, vote buying, deployment of violence of unprecedented dimension, arson and killings and in most areas snatching of ballot boxes and manifest manipulation and non use of the card reader machines to achieve their pre-determined result.

“Therefore our party rejects the sham and fictitious result as announced by INEC in state as it was contrived, manipulated and concocted to suit the unholy alliance between the commission and the PDP.

“We rather insist on the result of the elections from the field, which gave our party an overwhelming victory in 26 .

“The APC in Akwa Ibom hereby vehemently rejects the purported results as released by INEC in the state. We call on INEC to recourse to the part of honour and cancel the election results forthwith to avoid any breakdown of law and order.” He explained.

Okopido further said that the party would explore all legitimate means to retrieve its mandate.
