High Court Cancels APC’s Primaries in Rivers state!!

A Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, on Monday invalidated the direct and indirect primary elections allegedly conducted by two factions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state.

Delivering judgment, Justice Kolawole Omotosho, stated that both factions of the APC acted in disregard of a pending suit before a Port Harcourt High Court.

Recall that an APC governorship aspirant, Sen. Magnus Abe and other party members had approached the court presided over by Justice Chinwedu Worgu, opposing their alleged exclusion from the party primaries.

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

Justice Omotosho ruled that the APC in Rivers could not produce candidates for governorship, national and state assembly polls, while the matter was pending.
He said that, it is illegal for candidates for the 2019 elections to emerge from the two primaries conducted by the two factions.

The two primaries as claimed by the factions were held during the pendency of the matter at the state high court.

His words: “Both the direct and indirect primaries claimed to have been held by the APC are illegal and cannot stand in the face of the law’’.
