The election was characterized by low voter turnout, vote buying and alleged violence.

And, 11 days after being declared winner, the INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in Cross River, Dr. Cyril Omorogbe presented the Certificate of Return to him at the commission’s office in Calabar.

Mr. Edet is expected to present the Certificate to the Clerk of the House of Assembly and should be sworn-in afterwards.
