Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor, has finally been confirmed as the actual winner of the March 8, 2019, governorship election in the state, and hence, can henceforth concentrate on the execution of his state projects for the next four years.
This is coming on the verdict of the Supreme Court on Friday.
The apex court upheld two appeals filed by the against the decisions of the Court of Appeal, upturning the dismissal of a petition filed by the African Action Congress (AAC) and its candidate in the last governorship election, Awara Biokpomabo Festus.
In two unanimous judgments on Friday, a seven-man panel of the court upheld the two appeals by Wike on the grounds that they were meritorious. The appeals were marked: SC/1111/2019 and SC/1112/2019.
Justice Ejembi Eko wrote and delivered the lead judgments in both appeals, which the other six members of the panel agreed with.
The appeals were against the decisions of the Court of Appeal, reversing two decisions of the Rivers State Governorship Election Tribunal.
