Supreme Court Dismisses APC’s Appeal On Rivers Primaries.

The Supreme Court has struck out an appeal filed by the APC challenging the judgment of a High Court in Rivers State which barred the party from conducting any primaries in the state to nominate candidates to represent the party in the forth coming election.

The faction of the party headed by Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, had challenged the judgment of a high court in Rivers which barred the party from conducting primaries to nominate candidates to represent the party in the forth coming election.

The high court judgement was based on a suit filed by the Rivers APC faction led by Magnus Abe, a serving senator.

Abe had asked the court to annul the congresses and primaries which the rival faction conducted.
