The Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has nullified all the primaries conducted by APC in Rivers State.
With the development, the APC will not produce any candidate in the 2023 general elections in Rivers State just like it happened in 2019.
A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has nullified all the primary elections conducted by the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State.
This is due to unlawful exclusion of some members of the party as delegates to the primaries.
One George Orlu and 4 others had approached the court requesting that the primaries of APC in state be nullified following their alleged exclusion as delegates in the process.
Justice E.A. Obile in his judgment agreed with the plaintiffs that they were wrongly excluded in the election of delegates to participate in the party primaries.
The judge therefore ruled that all those elected from the primary should not be recognized as candidates.
