2019: No Guber Candidate From APC In Rivers-court,… As Court Upholds Owan Enoh As APC Candidate

2019:  No Guber Candidate From APC In Rivers-court,… As Court Upholds Owan Enoh As APC Candidate

A Federal High Court in Port Harcourt on Monday restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from recognising any candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2019 general elections in Rivers State .

This is coming just as a federal high court in Abuja has upheld Senator John Owan Enoh as candidate of the APC for the gubernatorial election in Cross River State.

The court said the suit filed by Niger Delta minister, Usani Usani lacked merit and therefore confirmed that Owan Enoh was properly nominated by his party for the election.

The court also nullified all nominations of the APC in Rivers State for the forthcoming elections in 2019.

The court ruled specifically that the APC cannot participate in the governorship, senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly elections during the 2019 polls in Rivers State.

Justice Kolawole  Omotosho in his judgment  in the suit filed by Senator Magnus Abe and others versus Rivers APC and others faulted the APC for failing to respect the law must bear the consequences of her disobedience of the law.

Omotosho stated that the Direct and indirect primaries of the Rivers State APC were illegal, null and void.

The court further declared that both the Direct and indirect primaries were held during the pendancy of the suit at the Rivers State High Court.

According to the court, the APC conducted the indirect primaries in gross disrespect of the pending suit before Justice Chinwendu Nwogu of the Rivers State High Court.

He noted that the judgment of Justice Chinwendu Nwogu nullifying the primaries of the APC in Rivers State was yet to be set aside by an appellate court, hence it remained valid.
