There is going to be another Governorship election in Rivers in 90 DAYS. It will be recalled that a tribunal on the 24th of October, had held that Governor Wike of Rivers State was not duly elected as the Governor of Rivers‎ state and so sacked him, but the Governor appealed against the judgment, insisting that he was duly elected the governor of the state.
Now a three-man Court of Appeal panel sitting in Abuja has now struck out the appeal. In a 110-page ruling delivered by Justice M.B. Dongban-Mensem, the Court ruled that the election of Nyesom Wike did not conform with the electoral act and ordered a rerun in 90 days. Will Rivers now have a new Governor? oh dear!!!

We wouldn't succumbed any form of intimidation, Nyesom was duly elected in this State to govern this state in the next four years. Who has conducted a credible election in this country

I thought that this country have the freedom of voting anybody of their hearts to become their leaders but what is wrong with this particular state when the people vote for the right person the government will void the election. This is too bad.

am yet to read the judgement to know the bases of the order of reelection. I trust Wike will do his home work well to ensure he remains on the seat.
