BREAKING NEWS: Appeal Court Upholds Tribunal’s Judgment Sacking Wike As Rivers Gov

NYESOM WIKEThe Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Wednesday upheld the ruling of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which annulled Nyesome Wike’s victory in the April 11 Rivers State gubernatorial poll in the state.

Wike, who contested on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, appealed the Tribunal’s judgment nullifying his election.

In a unanimous decision, the three-man panel of the appeal court led by Justice M.B Dongban-Mensem, ruled that the governor’s election did not conform with the Electoral Act.

The appellate court, therefore, ordered a fresh election within 90 days and asked Wike to vacate the seat immediately.
