BREAKING: Supreme Court Delivers Historic Judgement In The Rivers State Gov. Election

The Supreme Court of Nigeria, has struck out the suit filed by Senator Magnus Abe, on the primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Rivers State 2019 Governorship election.

In a unanimous judgment read on Monday, by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, ACJN, Ibrahim Mohammed, the apex court dismissed the application, on the ground that it lacks merit.

The court also noted that the suit is incompetent, and a gross violation of Order 2 Rule 8 of the Supreme Court Rules.

It held that once a notice of appeal has been found defective, it cannot be amended.

Recall, that the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, had on January 7, nullified the direct and indirect primaries conducted by the two factions of the APC, in the State.

Justice Kolawole Omotosho, who presided over the case, also restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from presenting Tonye Cole and Magnus Abe, as Governorship Candidates in the general elections.

He said that none of the primaries were conducted according to the law, noting that, INEC did not do well by submitting names of Candidates, without consideration of previous court orders.

Following the court’s ruling, Senator Abe filed an appeal against the nullification of the party’s primaries, at the Supreme Court.
