Nyesom Wike, the flag bearer for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in
Rivers State, has vowed to dispute the Court of Appeal ruling sacking
him as Governor to the Supreme Court.
Mr. Wike made his announcement in a statement through his Special
Assistant Simeon Nwakaudu today. He also called on his supporters in
Rivers State to remain calm and that he was the rightfully elected
Governor of Rivers State until the determination of the Supreme Court.
The Appeal Court today ordered that a rerun election will need to be
held in Rivers State in 90 days. The Court also stated that the
gubernatorial election was marred by violence and that the election was
not valid due to widespread irregularities.
