The All Progressives Congress in Rivers state has hailed the verdict of the appeal court that confirmed the sack of Bar. Nyesom Wike as Governor.
This was contained in a statement released by the party through its spokesperson Chris Finebone.
“The Rivers State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, received with satisfaction the judgement of the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja upholding the judgment of the Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which sacked Rivers State Governor, Ezebuwon Nyesom Wike.
The APC considers the decision of the appellate court that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, did not comply substantially with the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) as trite and incontrovertible. We believe that the decision today by the Appeal Court is a confirmation that evil can triumph over good but only temporarily.
We would like to urge our followers and supporters to remain calm and would be directed by our leaders through God Almighty’s inspiration. We also urge all intending members of our party to go and register at their units and old members to go and re-validate their membership now. We assure all that thunder would never strike in the same place twice.
The APC is happy to recognise that today is the birthday of Bro. Felix Amaechi Obuah, the State Chairman of the PDP in Rivers State. We are glad to offer him this Appeal Court judgment as a perfect birthday gift.”
