JUST IN: Supreme Court Seals Rivers APC Fate, Upholds High Court Judgement

The Supreme Court, on Friday, upheld the judgement given by the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, barring the All Progressives Congress from the general elections in Rivers State.

The Justice Mohammed Dattijo-led five-man panel of justices, on Friday, upheld the annulment of the governorship primaries conducted by a faction of the Rivers state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, saying it is fraught with irregularities.

The Supreme Court’s judgement upholds the rulings of the Court of Appeal and the High Court in Rivers State which earlier dismissed the appeal filed by the Rivers State’s All Progressives Congress’ chairman, Flag Ojukaye, challenging the judgements cancelling the conduct of the party’s primaries.

The Supreme court’s ruling today entails that the the Rivers State APC will not be presenting any candidates for the National Assembly, Governorship and House of Assembly elections beginning Feb. 16th.

The Federal High court was presided over by Justice Omotosho.

On Monday, the Appeal court stayed the execution of the lower court judgement, giving hope to the APC candidates in the state.
