Court Rules in Favour of Tonye Cole and Rivers State APC


Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has ruled in favour of APC and its Gubernatorial Candidate Tonye Cole on the suit sought to stop APC and Tonye Cole from taking part in the 2023 Rivers State Gubernatorial Election.


Mr. Bernard Mikko who was a Gubernatorial Aspirant of APC in Rivers State earlier dragged INEC, APC, Tonye Cole, and Ojukaye Flag-Amachree to court over the conduct of the party primary that brought in Tonye Cole as the Gubernatorial Candidate of the party.


Trial judge, Justice Phoebe Ayua, who dismissed the suit, said the Plaintiff failed to explore and exhaust the party's dispute resolution mechanism before instituting the instant suit.


Justice Ayua also noted that Plaintiff has sworn to an oath to abide by the outcome of the party's primaries, which he cannot approbate and reprobate at the same time.
