Wike Sacked by Rivers Tribunal

The Rivers State governorship election petition tribunal has sacked the state’s governor, Nyesom Wike, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The tribunal, in a judgment delivered in Abuja, upheld the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate in the April 11 election the state, Dakuku Peterside, challenging the declaration of Wike as winner of the election.

The tribunal chairman, Justice Mohammed Ambrosa, in the judgment that lasted over two hours, held that the petitioners proved that the election that produced Wike “did not substantially comply with the Electoral Act.”

The tribunal ordered a rerun election within 90 days.
