The All Progressives Congress, APC in Akwa Ibom State says it has withdrawn from the re-run election holding on Saturday.

This was disclosed in a press conference on Friday in Uyo, by the State Chairman of the APC, Mr Ini Okopido.

He said the party has withdrawn from the re-run election in Essien Udim local government area as it was dissatisfied with the conduct of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC in the state.

“As far as we are concerned, Igini has shown unprecedented bias against APC. We know he does not like APC in Akwa Ibom State and if he conducts any election in Akwa Ibom, the party will withdraw. Igini has not been fair to us as a state,” he said.
