2019 polls: Supreme Court to decide Rivers appeals tomorrow

The Supreme Court will tomorrow give judgement in the appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the decision of a Federal High Court in Port-Harcourt setting aside the two primaries conducted by two factions of the party in Rivers state for the 2019 general election.

One of the factions is headed by the minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi while the other is headed by a serving senator, Magnus Abe.

Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour fixed the date for the judgement after taking arguments from counsel for appellant, APC, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN) and counsel for Ibrahim Umah and others, Henry Bello.

While addressing the court, Fagbemi urged the Supreme Court to nullify the judgement of the high court in Port Harcourt on the ground that it had no jurisdiction when it entertained the suit.

He also claimed that since the trial court had no jurisdiction, its judgement in the matter amounted to a nullity and should be set aside.

However, in his own argument, counsel for the respondent, Henry Bello, urged the apex court to dismiss the appeal of the APC on the ground that it has become a mere academic in nature.
