Breaking News: Appeal Court nullifies Nyesom Wike’s election.

News reaching us is that the Federal Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has this afternoon nullified the election of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and ordered a rerun in 90 days. In a 110-page ruling delivered by Justice M.B. Dongban-Mensem, the Court ruled that the election of Nyesom Wike did not conform with the electoral act. Wike had approached the appellate court to challenge the earlier verdict of the tribunal that annulled his election as a result of a suit filed by the APC candidate Dakuku Peterside. Wike still has the Supreme Court to approach on the matter.
