The All Progressive Congress (APC) and its Akwa Ibom governorship candidate in the April 11th 2015 governorship election, Mr. Umana Umana, have tendered the report of their inspection and scanning of the election materials as ordered by the tribunal.

The tribunal at its proceedings took the testimony of a data analyst, who inspected the election materials.

The analyst told the tribunal that from his analysis there are indications that voting did not take place in most polling units in the state.

However, under cross-examination, he told the tribunal that the team could not carry out re-count of the ballot papers, because they were not made available for inspection.

He maintained that his analysis indicates irregularities that run contrary to the election guidelines.

While counsel to the petitioners expressed satisfaction with the testimony of the witness, the defence believes that the witness has helped the court to decide the credibility of his testimony as it relates to the case.

Meanwhile, the tribunal also admitted as an exhibit, a security report tendered by the Inspector-General of Police, who was subpoenaed by the tribunal through a legal officer from the Force Criminal Investigation Department, following a no objection plea by the defense counsels in the suit.
