Court disqualifies Rivers APC governorship candidate, Tonye Cole

A federal high court has ruled that Tonye Cole, the All Progressives Congress candidate for governor of Rivers state, is ineligible.

The Peoples Democratic Party filed the complaint, and the court decided in their favour. The PDP has requested that Tonye Cole be disqualified because the delegates who cast ballots in the primary poll that awarded him the ticket were not legitimately elected.

Despite the fact that APC’s attorney raised a preliminary challenge over the court’s jurisdiction to hear the case, the decision was nonetheless made.
