Supreme Court upholds Governor Wike’s election

  

Today, the Supreme Court upheld the victory of the governor of River State, Mr. Nyesom Wike at the 2015 polls by overruling the earlier judgment of the Court of Appeal, which upheld the nullification of his
election by the Election Petition Tribunal.

Governor Wike had filed 20 grounds of appeal to the Supreme Court, alleging that the election tribunal relied on hearsay and inadmissible evidence to arrive at its judgment which favored APC’s Dakuku Peterside.

He also said the Tribunal had wrongly refused to follow the decision in Agbaje versus Ambode, which held that the use or non-use of card reader cannot be a ground for questioning or nullifying an election….. ds WIKEnd will b WIKEd in Port Harcourt….
