Supreme Court Dismisses Wike’s Suit Against ElectionsTribunal

wike

The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the suit filed by Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, challenging the jurisdiction of the state governorship election petition tribunal to hear a petition filed against his election by the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate in the April 11 gubernatorial poll, Dakuku Peterside.

The tribunal on Saturday nullified the election and ordered a fresh poll within 90 days.

Wike, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the poll, had said in his petition that the tribunal which sat in Abuja had no jurisdiction over matters that transpired in Rivers State.

He insisted that the tribunal should have conducted its activities in Rivers and not in Abuja.
