Tribunal Orders Inspection Of Ballot Papers In Akpabio’s Election by Tolexander: 12:11pm On May 08, 2015

The National and State Houses of Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal for Akwa Ibom on Friday ordered the inspection of 450,000 ballot papers used in declaring Governor Godswill Akpabio as Senator-elect.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Akpabio the winner of the March 28 Senatorial Election for Akwa Ibom North-West District.

This declaration prompted the All Progressives Congress candidate for the Senatorial District, Chief Inibehe Okorie, to petition the Tribunal asking that Akpabio’s election be nullified for alleged irregularities.

Ruling on the prayers of the petitioner, the Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Adedayo Oyebanji, directed that the polling documents used in the election be inspected.

Oyebanji explained that the order was derived from the provisions of Section 151 (1) of the Electoral Act 2010.
The section allows for inspection of polling documents if the Tribunal is satisfied that it could help maintain or defend an election petition.

The chairman further directed that the inspection should be conducted within 10 days from May 8, in the presence of the respondent or his agents and the security agents.

Earlier, the counsel for the petitioner, Chief Assam Assam (SAN), had prayed the Tribunal to grant leave for inspection of the polling documents to verify 450,000 votes scored by Akpabio.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 35 petitions had been received by the Tribunal in the state as of May 8.

Well, it's a welcome initiative.
If found guilty, what will be the verdict?
A re-run or outright enthronement of the second-place candidate?
If it's a re-run, then they had better not bothered.
Akpabio will always win any election held there.

This would have been the BEST NEWS if it was either Theordor Orji(Oche mkpi) and Andy Uba(Senate Bench warmer) that Tribunal ordered for their ballot papers to be verified properly. I always weep for this country. The Judiciary permit the rogues to move around freely and instigate those that managed to make us see a little light in democracy,despite they stole from us but they had the little conscience to give us small taste of what they have stolen from us.(Akwa ibom is a case study 1999-2007, Akwa ibom was just a village setting even the capital Uyo but 2007-2014 Akwa Ibom changed to a mega city that can even compete with Lasgidi especially Uyo). Haven't you asked why every youth Corp member want to serve in that state?
