A Federal High Court in Akwa Ibom State has sentenced the governorship candidate of the Young Progressives Party Bassey Albert to 42 years in prison for fraud.

Delivering judgment on Thursday, the Presiding Judge Agatha Okeke found the Senator guilty of the offences.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC had in 2019 arraigned Albert on a six-count charge of allegedly taking possession of six vehicles worth N204 million when he was finance commissioner in the state.

Albert, a serving senator representing Akwa Ibom northeast district, was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
