The #Rivers #State Governorship #Election Petition #Tribunal sitting in Abuja, yesterday, slated Monday to decide whether or not to dismiss the petition that was filed against Governor Nyesom #Wike by the All Progressives Congress, #APC.
The Justice Muazu Pindiga-led tribunal adjourned for ruling on a day APC and its governorship candidate in Rivers State, Dr. Dakuku Peterside, accused Governor Wike and the Peoples Democratic #Party, #PDP, of plotting to hijack the proceeding of the tribunal.
The petitioners made the allegation following two separate applications challenging the continued hearing of the petition seeking to annul the April 11 governorship election in Rivers State.
The applications were filed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and Governor Wike.
The two defendants, through their various lawyers, yesterday, challenged the proceeding of the tribunal, insisting that pre-hearing session on the petition by the APC was not properly convoked.
INEC through its lawyer Mr. K.O.C. Njemanze, SAN, applied for an order dismissing the petition as being abandoned in consequence of non compliance with the provision of paragraph 18(1) of the First Schedule to the Electoral Act.
