Breaking: Court bars ‘APC candidates’ from Rivers Guber poll


The All Progressives Congress (APC) will be battling another round of political bottleneck following the pronouncement of a Federal High Court which barred the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from recognising either Tony Cole or Magnus Abe as Governorship candidates.

The court which sat in Portharcourt on Monday also also declared as nulity all direct and indirect primaries conducted by both factions of APC in the state.

Justice James Omotosho, while delivering the judgement said none of the primaries were conducted according to the law.

With barely three months to the gubernatorial elections across the country, it remains to be seen the next step the leadership of the party would likely take after similar annoncement rattled the central rulling party in Zamfara, some months ago.
