APC IN RIVERS STATE COMPELLED INEC TO POSTPONE ELECTION

THE All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers state has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to postpone elections in the state.

Elections Just in: AGF files 4 processes in Industrial Court This is as the Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, yesterday, dismissed the joinder application by the All Progressives Ground Alliance, APGA, in the case between the All Progressives Congress, APC, factions of Tonye Cole and Sen Magnus Abe and 42 other candidates over earlier Federal High Court ruling.

The three man appeal panel led by Justice Ali Gumel, in dismissing the application, held that the party seeking to be joined failed to provide sufficient legal interest in the matter it wished to join. INEC had disqualified the APC from contesting the election over the crisis which affected its primaries.

There are two factions of the party in the state.

One led by Chubuike Amaechi, Minister of Transportation while

Magnus Abe, a serving senator, leads the other faction. Tonye Princewill, director of strategic communications for the campaign of Tonye Cole, guber candidate of the Amaechi faction, said conducting the election without the APC will be “an exercise in futility”.

He said giving the APC candidates an extension of time to go about their campaigns was necessary because of the “disruption by the legal tussle.”
