The tribunal Chairman, Justice A. M. Yakubu, also gave permission to the APC to serve Gov. Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom and the PDP through substituted means. Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN), the lead Counsel to Ekere and the APC, Chief Victor Iyenam, said the party will proceed immediately to paste the court processes on the PDP Secretariat located on Four Lane, Uyo. “What we got was an application for substituted service since efforts to service Gov. Udom Emmanuel failed. “So, the court has granted us leave to serve the governor at the PDP office in Uyo. And then the other application is to inspect election materials. “We will get to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office to obtain the documents as listed, inspect them and make photocopies. NAN reports that the election petition tribunal sitting in Uyo said it received 34 petitions. The tribunal said two petitions from the Senatorial election filed by Sen. Godswill Akpabio of APC against Mr Christopher Ekpenyong of the PDP from Akwa Ibom North West and Mr Bassey Etim of APC against Sen. Bassey Akpan of the PDP from Akwa Ibom North East.
