While Governor Udom’s victory was challenged by ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Umana Umana, Governor Ikpeazu’s election was challenged by Dr Alex Otti of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

In a marathon ruling, the court reversed the decision of the Courts of Appeal, which nullified both governors’ elections.
