The Independent National Electoral Commission has said the All Progressives Congress in Akwa Ibom State has no governorship candidate for the 2023 general elections
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Akwa Ibom, Mike Igini, said this in a report sent to the INEC headquarters in Abuja.
Igini in the letter dated May 27, 2022, said: “We wish to report that the APC governorship primary scheduled to hold on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at the Sheergrace Arena, Nsikak Eduok Avenue, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State did not hold at all.”
The report stated that the commission’s monitoring team, led by Mr Igini, in the company of the Commissioner of Police in Akwa Ibom, Andrew Amiengheme, arrived at the venue of the primary for the third time at 6:45 p.m., without seeing anyone.
The heads of the two federal agencies were informed that the APC election committee members were held up by an angry group of APC members along a major road in Uyo.
