This comes as the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Wednesday dismissed a suit brought by the People’s Democratic Party against the national assembly candidates of the All-Progressives Congress APC for lack of jurisdiction.

In its suit, the PDP had prayed to the court to nullify the candidacy of all the legislative candidates running on the platform of the APC in the state on the ground that their primaries were not monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC.

But the court presided over by Justice Turaki Mohammed dismissed the case, citing a lack of jurisdiction based on an earlier judgment by the Court of Appeal which barred political parties from interfering in the internal affairs of other parties.

Speaking to journalists after the court decision, lawyer to the APC, Emenike Ebete hailed the decision, describing it as a victory for justice.

He said with the judgment, all APC candidates are now free to campaign across River’s state for next year’s elections.
