2019: Rivers APC Has No Candidate in the Elections, Says S/Court

 

The Supreme Court has finally shattered the ambition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to present candidates for the forthcoming elections in Rivers State.

This is because the Apex Court on Tuesday struck out an appeal filed by the party challenging the judgment of a High Court in Rivers State, which barred it from conducting any primaries in the state to nominate candidates for 2019 elections.

The Supreme Court judgment comes barely one week after same court stopped the APC from fielding candidates in all elections in the state.

NAN reports that the ruling APC was in support Mr Tonye Cole’s candidature for the governorship election, which the Magnus Abe group rejected and filed and pursue their case against his candidacy from the High Court to Appeal Court and now the apex court. NAN
