. . . Udom in quandary as Tribunal admits Exhibits

Continuing its sitting in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state Governorship Election Petition Tribunal reconvened on 5th July 2019 having adjourned proceedings the previous day. As expected Chairman of the tribunal Justice A. M. Yakubu acknowledged the presence of parties and was immediately followed with counsels’ announcement of appearance. J. S. Okutepa (SAN) appeared alongside Prof. Ernest Ojukwu (SAN), Victor Iyanam (Esq.) and 17 others for the Petitioners. L. Oko (Esq.) announced his appearance with others for 1st Respondents and apologized to the Tribunal for the absence of the lead Counsel, Assam E. Assam whom he said was running late. Uko Udom (SAN) entered appearance for 2nd Respondent along with David Amah (Esq.), Samuel Akpabio (Esq.) and others. Silva Oguemoh (SAN) announced appearance with Prince Nwagbo and others for 3rd Respondent.

Petitioner’s Counsel, J. S Okutepa set the ball rolling as he rose to inform the Tribunal he was ready to tender Certified True Copies (CTC) of Voters Register for Eastern Obolo Local Government consisting 10 Registration centres and 51 polling units. Tribunal Chairman advised counsel to arrange the documents one after the other according to the numbers of the polling units, that is, 1 – 51 to which Counsel admitted he had done.

Counsel to 2nd Respondent, Uko Udom (SAN) reminded the Chairman that the Respondents had only consented to the mode of tendering documents as agreed by the Tribunal but without necessarily consenting to the veracity of the documents. Tribunal Chairman re-echoed the opinion of Counsel and gave a nod to Petitioner’s counsel to tender the documents seriatim. Tribunal received the documents and marked same as PT 1 – PT 51 and admitted same into its records as Exhibit PT 132.
