Mr. Etim had sought to be joined in the pre-election matter filed by Mr. Akan Okon against the governorship candidate of the PDP, Mr. Umo, pending before Justice Agatha Okeke of the Federal High Court, Uyo.

Justice Okeke in dismissing the plaintiff’s case described him as a “meddlesome interloper”.

The judgment of the Supreme Court is said to have cleared the coast for the Federal High Court to give judgment in the pre-election case between Akan Okon and Umo Eno which have been fixed for Friday 11th November.
