House of Rep: Supreme Court sacks Eseme Eyiboh, Bassey Dan Abia to be sworn-in immediately

L-R: Eyiboh, Abia Jnr.
The Supreme Court Friday morning sacked Hon. Eseme Eyiboh as member representing Eket Federal Consituency of Akwa Ibom State at House of Representatives.
It could be recalled that Eyiboh in January, 2012 lost at Court of Appeal where Justice Ayo Bada read out a unanimous judgment upholding the victory of Bassey Dan Abia Jnr. as the PDP candidate at the 2011 primaries of the party.
Eyiboh had taken the case to Supreme Court which has been thrown out today, with the apex court upholding the judgment of the lower court. The court ordered Bassey Dan Abia Jnr. to be sworn-in with immediate effect.
