The Speaker, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Mr. Darlington Udobong, said, “the Supreme Court verdict has finally put paid to the failed rumours propagated by the opposition in the state. It has also put the final legal seal on the victory of Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel and to our dear party, the PDP.”

It is indeed a sweet victory and I sincerely congratulate Governor Udom Emmanuel and the entire leadership of the PDP.” The statement added
