2019 Elections: Court Sacks Another Governorship Candidate

A federal high court sitting in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital on Thursday removed the governorship candidate of Accord party, Dumo Lulu Briggs ahead of March 9 governorship election, Igberetvnews reports.

The presiding judge, Justice Emmanuel Obile said that Lulu Briggs did not participate in the party’s primaries that was conducted on October 4, 2018.

The judge said Briggs was a governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the time of conducting the primary.

Obile, therefore, declared Briggs’ candidacy as null, void and unconstitutional.

The court, thereafter, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to replace Briggs’ name with that of the plaintiff, Precious Baridon as the candidate of the party.
