BREAKING: Supreme Court Upholds Judgment Nullifying Rivers APC Primaries

















A five-man panel of Judges of the Supreme Court has issued a judgment upholding the nullification of the primaries of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State.


On January 7, 2019, a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, nullified the primaries conducted by the two factions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State. In the judgment, the court also restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from presenting Tonye Cole, Magnus Abe and other candidates of the APC in the 2019 governorship election in the state.
