BREAKING: Court Dismisses Suit Seeking To Stop Rivers Election Result Collation

Osagbemi Anthony

Justice Inyang Ekwo of Abuja high court has dismissed a suit filed by the African Action Congress (AAC) seeking to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from collating the results of the March 9, Governorship and House of Assembly elections in Rivers state.

In a ruling on Tuesday, the judge held that since the case was election-related, it was appropriate for the plaintiffs to take their case before an election tribunal.

The Judge held that the PDP was right that the Federal High Court lacked jurisdiction to hear the case adjudged to be seeking post-election prayers which could only be entertained by an election petition tribunal.

Justice Ekwo declined jurisdiction on the matter and went further to dismiss the case.
