RIVERS: APC has shot itself in the leg —PDP

Rivers APC reacts to court ruling nullifying candidates’ list, fingers Gov Wike, Sen Abe

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the ruling of a Federal High Court that ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to enlist any candidates by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in any position in 2019 general elections in Rivers State.

Justice Kolawole Omotosho on Monday ruled that all names of governorship, House of Representatives and state house of Assembly be removed by INEC.

PDP’s spokesman in the state, Darlington Orji said it was stupid of the APC to expect to eat its cake and have it back.

Darlington added that the judgment had already decided where the tide of election would turn in the State.

“The judgment has proven that the judiciary is still the hope of the common man, a proof that dictatorship has ended in Rivers politics, a situation where one man sits in his room to decide what happens in the state.

“The judgment has solved the problem of Rivers even before the election.

“The spirit of God has taken control. Governance is a social contract and we have our score card to show. Governor Nyesom Wike has shown capacity.

“My advice to APC is that nobody can benefit from his stupidity. They shot themselves in the foot and they cannot get out of it. The 2019 election is between poverty and making Nigeria work again.”
