Supreme Court: APC Vows To Petition NJC Over River Election



Basking in the euphoria of victory and winning an additional state in the judiciary, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has promised to report the PDP led government in river state to the National Judicial Council.

According to Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC spokesman, Augusta Kingsley-Chukwu, a judge of the Rivers state high court presiding over some cases involving the party has not been fair to the party as it works towards repositioning the APC in Rivers.

Naija News recalled that the supreme court had nullified all the party’s congress in Rivers and this denied the APC from participating in the 2019 general election.

Issa-Onilu said based on the development, the party decided to set up a caretaker committee that would oversee congresses to elect new leaders at all levels of the state.

However, the APC spokesman said the party has not been able to constitute the caretaker committee because of cases that have been filed in court. While calling on Ibrahim Muhammad, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), to caution judges, the APC spokesman said his party would also write a petition against Kingsley-Chukwu.
