However, the former Commissioner for Economic Development Dr Ekong Sampson who polled a total 368 votes to win the PDP ticket for Akwa Ibom South (Eket) Senatorial District while the member representing Eket Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives Hon Patrick Ifon scored 1 vote as well as Francis Uduyok representing Ikot Abasi , Mkpat Enin and Eastern Obolo federal constituency who scored only 11 votes

The former chief Staff to Governor Udom Emmanuel, Mr Ephraim Inyangeyen said he withdrawn from participating in the exercise in protest of what he described as contempt of court.

In a statement made available to newsmen in Uyo on Monday, Okorie said his refusal to participate in the Senatorial Primary election in the state was predicated on Abuja High court ruling between Hon Friday Iwok, others versus INEC delivered on 18th May 2022 directing the parties to maintain status quo ante pending determination of the substantive suit on ad-hoc delegates election in the state.

He argued that the state party has carried out all the instructions by the National Working Committee of the party in the adding that the exercise has no flaw in the state.

” In AKwa Ibom state, we work on the directive if National working Committee. Awwa Ibom is PDP and PDP is Akwa Ibom,” Akpan said.
