Barely few hours to judgement on a case filed by Elder Bassey Etim of APC and Obong Bassey Albert Akpan of PDP, the Court of Appeal sitting in Calabar has set up a new panel to adjudicate over the case.
According to report, Obong Bassey Albert Akpan, who is alleged to have gone to the Appeal Court, Calabar with over 1000 supporters, band boys, and media crew including AlT , Channel TV among others to celebrate his victory is the most disappointed person at the moment.
Online media reports say, the Senator weeps, knowing too well that the new panel judgement may not favour him.
Speaking with our reporter, immediately after receiving an official letter notifying parties for the new panel. The DG of Bassey Etim’s campaign organisation, Hon Michael George, who was visibly elated, expressed appreciation to God for the new development, saying that APC candidates were victimised, deprived of the right to be heard and would have been denied victory if they had continued. He commended the leadership of APC and judiciary for standing at the side of the truth.
Hon. George admonished supporters to be calm as victory is sure. All efforts to speak with Senator Bassey Albert’s spokesperson failed.
