Former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has promised to challenge his loss in the February 23 National Assembly elections. In fact, he said he won the election.
According to the result declared by the INEC Returning Officer,
The result was announced at the INEC headquarters in Uyo instead of Ikot-Ekpene due to alleged security threats in the area.
But Akpabio, who spoke on The Verdict, a live programme of Channels Television, on Wednesday, vowed to challenge the collation of the results, adding that he could not lose the election.
The senator said, “I won. It’s a temporary setback. That is why there are processes. For instance, if you feel that you were cheated or there was wrong collation, you have recourse to the courts. I did not fail; I can’t fail.
