BREAKING: Wike loses at Supreme Court

Global day of prayer with Rev Chris Oyakhilome

The ousted Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has lost his bid to nullify the sitting of the Rivers State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday morning threw out the bid by Wike to declare the sitting of the Tribunal in Abuja as being against the law.

The court said the President of the Court of Appeal acted in line with the ‎law.
It said the relocation of the tribunal to Abuja was to safeguard the lives of the tribunal chairman and members.

Wike had approached the apex court to challenge the sitting of the tribunal in Abuja instead of Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

The court affirmed the judgement of the Court of Appeal, which had earlier okayed the decision of the Tribunal to assume jurisdiction.
