Appeal Court Dismisses APC's Petition Against Rivers Governor Fubara

The Appeal Court in Lagos State has dismissed Tonye-Cole’s petition against Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, seeking to be declared the winner of the March governorship election. Tonye-Cole, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), alleged irregularities and claimed that Fubara, a candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), continued to sign documents as the state’s Accountant-General after his nomination.

The Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal had earlier dismissed the petition, citing the APC’s withdrawal. Unsatisfied, Tonye-Cole took the case to the Appeal Court.
