The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) swept all seats in the four state constituencies where the rerun house of Assembly election took place in Akwa Ibom State on Saturday. 

The rerun was held in four state constituencies. Namely, Etinan, Ibesikpo/Asutan, Ikot Ekpene/Obot Akara and Oron constituencies.

Recall the rerun was ordered by the Court of Appeal, sitting in Abuja, in its judgment on appeals stemming from 2015 election petitions.
