The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt has granted a stay of execution of the judgement of the Federal High Court (FHC) nullifying all primaries of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, Naija News understandnds.

Justice Kolawole Omotosho of the FHC in Port Harcourt had nullified the APC primaries in the state on January 7 and restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from presenting Tonye Cole and Magnus Abe as governorship candidates in the general elections, Naija News recalls.

Subsequently, INEC excluded the party from the list of candidates for the elections. Appeal Court has, however, granted a stay of execution of Justice Omotosho’s judgement.
