The Court of Appeal, Abuja, on Wednesday upheld the verdict of the Rivers State governorship election petition tribunal which nullified the victory of Nyesom Wike in the April 11 governorship election in the state.

The court’s three-man panel led by Justice M.B. Dongban-Mensem, ruled that Wike’s election did not conform with the Electoral Act.

The panel ordered a fresh election within 90 days and asked the governor to vacate the seat immediately.

The tribunal headed by Justice Suleiman Ambrosa had in a judgment on October 24 voided Wike’s election and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct fresh election in Rivers State.
