Rivers Guber: Court takes final decision on AAC’s suit


A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a suit by the African Action Congress (AAC), questioning the propriety of handling of the last governorship and State Assembly elections in Rivers State.

AAC in the suit kicked against the announcement of the results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Justice Ekwo declined jurisdiction and dismissed the case.
