Tribunal Annuls Nyesom Wike’s Election, Orders Fresh Poll



The River State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja have annulled the election of Chief Nyesom Wike of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the winner of the April 11, 2015 governorship poll in the State.

The decision is coming after weeks of hearings and investigations by the tribunal.

It will be recalled that the All Progressive Congress Candidate, Dakuku Peterside, had filed a suit at the tribunal, seeking the elections annulment, over violence that occurred in most part of the State, during the governorship poll in Rivers State, in which some indigenes lost their lives.

The tribunal has however, ordered that fresh elections should be conducted within ninety days in the state.
