Tribunal sacks Speaker, 20 other Rivers lawmakers


The Rivers State Elections Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Monday nullified the election of 21 out of the 32 members of the state House of Assembly.

Top on the list of the sacked legislators was the Speaker, Owaji Ibani.

Ibani represents Andoni constituency.

All the legislators were elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The sack of the lawmakers came barely two days after the Tribunal nullified the election of Barrister Nyesom Wike as the governor of the state.

The tribunal cited cases of irregularities and violence among other electoral malpractices that led to the nullification of the lawmakers’ election victory.

The tribunal ordered fresh elections to fill the vacant seats.
