The Supreme Court, on Thursday, affirmed the election of Umo Eno as Akwa Ibom governor.

The court discharged three separate appeals by the All Progressives Congress, Young Progressives Congress and New Nigerian Peoples Party and their candidates against Eno.

This was after counsel for the parties involved in the matter opted to withdraw the appeals.

The parties had asked the apex court to remove the governor of the state, alleging certificate forgery among others.
