It was another victory for Mr Udom Emmanuel as a Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting In Jabi, Abuja, yesterday, dismissed another suit which had sought to nullify the election of Mr Emmanuel as the Governor of Akwa Ibom State.

The FCT High Court presided over by Justice Halilu held that the FCT High Court lacked jurisdiction to entertain a pre-election matter which had taken place in Akwa Ibom State and consequently dismissed the case for lack of jurisdiction.

A gubernatorial aspirant in Akwa Ibom State, Mr Ime Effiong Ekanem, acting for himself and other aspirants under the aegis of G22, had gone to court after the Akwa Ibom State gubernatorial primaries and obtained an injunction that Mr Emmanuel’s name should not be forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
