Supreme Court upholds Governor Wike's election as Rivers state governor

The Supreme Court today Wednesday, January 27, upheld the election of Nyesom Wike as the duly elected governor of Rivers State.

Wike had approached the apex court after the Appeal Court upheld the decision of Rivers State Governorship Petitions Tribunal which nullified his election on October 24, 2015. APC candidate Dakuku Peterside had won the appeal court sitting challenging Wike's election as the Rivers State governor.
Wike took the case to the Supreme Court and has gotten the ruling that will ensure he remains Rivers State governor till at least May 2019.

The ruling was delivered by Justice Kekere-Ekun. The apex court 7-man panel which was headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed will provide reasons for their judgement on February 12.

"Let us thank the Almighty God the father of Our Jesus Christ as APC, a demonic party, has failed again. Through the mercy of the Lord that party of propaganda got defended at the Poll in Bayelsa State. God loves the Southerners; He keep delivering us from the hands of the Gambarians. We are like them that dreamt in the night. APC might have occupied Aso Rock through the strength of half educated Talakawas, but, we the liberal Christian South, remain resolute not to be governed nor dictated upon by the Fulani influence or incursion
.

Barnabas Ebigbo said...

Wow!!! This is indeed a Wonderful news,but first I must say congratulations to Gov.wike and all the people of Rivers State. And I pray the opposition tow the line of conceding defeat. Now,I said Wonderful news,because,it shows the judiciary is unbiased and have a mind and power of their own. It's unfortunate that a lot of people lost their lives for the sake of peace,but as a non partisan Nigerian,the ruling party didn't have a case at all,cos,they were told not to vote by the erstwhile Gov Amechi,cos they percieved irregularities,so it was surprising the election was nullified. We pray for peace and progress in that state and Nigeria at large. The next battle is that of Kogi... We are Watching and praying

It's was a good decision by Supreme Court another election could have lead to killing of innocent citizens in rivers the same should be done in Abia another election will lead to wasting of Life in Abia let the man use his 4yrs ang go let's say no to wasting of tax payer money and un necessary killing.

It will not be in the interest of Nigerians and democracy for the card reader to be rubbished because it will return us all to square one. Rig! Rig!! Rig!!! Elections would even become bloodier. The card reader created some sanity but with this judgement, I doubt if there will be any positive effect of card readers anymore. If it lacks legal backing then the NASS must act fast to back up the card reader with necessary legal and consitutional instruments if not the incumbents will just concentrate on falsifying results irrespective of whatever the card reader captures. Ekwu che kemu!!!
