Appeal Court Gives INEC Green Light To Accept APC Candidate In Rivers

The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers State, has granted stay of execution of the lower court's judgement nulifying all primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in RIvers State and restraining the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from fielding the party's candidates in the forthcoming general election.

In January, Justice Kolawole Omotosho of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt had nullified both the direct and indirect primaries conducted by two factions of the party. He also restrained INEC from recognising any candidates of the APC for the 2019 general election in the state.
