Some members and supporters of the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress(APC) are all in a shock and fearful mood following the outcome of todays Tribunal Rullings which went in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
The Chairman of the Rivers East National and state Houses of Assembly election Petition Tribunal Justice Muazu Pindiga had today upheld the electoral victory of Senator George Sekibo,Ken Chikere,Kingsley Chindah and five others.
The rulling of Justice Muazu Pindiga was based on the fact that the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress(APC) failed to notify the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) within the 21days as stipulated in the electoral act.
What saved the Rivers State APC was the replacement of Justice Muazu Pindiga,else the tsunami rulling today would have extended to the Governorship petition filled by Dakuku Peterside.
Some of the members of the Rivers State APC who spoke to PUO REPORTS over the outcome of the Judgments said Justice Muazu Pindiga has given them a big blow to their face,others said Pindiga’S RULLING was a clear indication that he compromised when he was handling the Governorship Petition.
Although the Court of APPEAL has ruled on this same issue,when it ordered the Tribunal on the case of George Dawari Vs Boma Goodhead,when the Tribunal struck out the petition of the later over the issue of 21days notification.
The governorship tribunal Panel has ruled on this issue on the case of Wike Vs Dakuku,todays rulling has really sent a wrong signal to Rivers APC
