Appeal Court To Deliver Judgment On Rivers Guber Election Today

Fubara and Cole

The Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos State will deliver judgment today on the governorship election petition filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Patrick Tonye-Cole, against Governor Siminalayi Fubara and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The judgment date is barely two weeks after the parties argued and adopted their final written addresses.

Cole wants the court to direct INEC to declare him the winner of the March governorship election in Rivers.

He insists that Fubara was still signing documents as Accountant-General of the State even after his nomination as the governorship candidate of the PDP.

He also alleged irregularities in the election, amongst other pleas.
