An Appeal Court sitting in Calabar, Cross River State, has ordered a rerun election in Akwa Ibom north-west senatorial district.

Godswill Akpabio, a former governor of the state had contested alongside Chris Ekpeyong, a former deputy governor of the state, in February.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Ekpeyong of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), winner of the election.
