The All Progressives Congress (APC) Cross River State has rejected all judgements delivered by the election petition tribunal sitting in Calabar, Cross River State capital.
A statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday by the Party’s Publicity Secretary in the State, Bassey Ita said the party led by Sir John Ochala had rejected the judgements in its totality.
“We reject the said judgments in its totality and urge our teeming supporters and stakeholders not to despair as we are set to appeal against the obnoxious verdicts.
“Last Wednesday and Thursday’s judgments delivered by the Elections Petition Tribunal in Calabar over petitions brought before it by the All Progressives Congress regarding the conduct of the last general elections in the state were a travesty of justice.
“The tribunal claimed it lacks the locus to hear the petitions and therefore struck them out on grounds that the issue of exclusion of our candidates from the election process was a pre-election matter and not an election matter that is within its jurisdiction to hear.
“We condemn the whipping up of the issue of internal party crisis by the Tribunal as the basis for which it affirmed the argument of our opponents in the said matter that our party had no candidates in the election.
