Court Stops INEC From Recognizing Cole And Abe As Rivers APC Governorship Candidates

The ruling All Progressives Congress might have been dealt a terrible blow after a court restrained INEC from recognizing two of its warring candidates.

A Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, on Monday nullified the direct and indirect primary elections allegedly conducted by two factions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers.
Delivering judgment, Justice Kolawole Omotosho, said both factions of the APC acted in disrespect of a pending suit before a Port Harcourt High Court.
It would be recalled that an APC governorship aspirant, Sen. Magnus Abe and other party members had approached the court presided over by Justice Chinwedu Worgu, challenging their alleged exclusion from the primaries.


Abe and his supporters had alleged high-handedness and irregularities in the planned conduct of the party primaries.
