Appeal Court Sacks Wike, Orders Fresh Election In Rivers

Oh dear, there is going to be
another Governorship election in Rivers in 90 DAYS. It will be recalled that a tribunal
on the 24th of October, had held that Governor Wike of Rivers State was
not duly elected as the Governor of Rivers‎ state and so sacked him, but the
Governor appealed against the judgment, insisting that he was duly elected the governor
of the state.
Now a three-man Court of Appeal
panel sitting in Abuja has now struck out the appeal. 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 and ordered a rerun in 90
days. Will Rivers now have a new Governor? oh dear!!!
