Rivers State PDP court order is suspect and meaningless – APC


The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) purported court order against the release of Tai re-run election results by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is not of any consequence if any person or political party decides to embark on an ego trip using the courts.
“In any case, the Electoral Act 2010, Section 133 sub 1 forbids any courts from questioning INEC in any manner other than by petition complaining of an undue election or undue return presented to competent tribunal or court.
“Definitely, the Federal High Court the PDP purportedly obtained its order does not qualify to issue such an order on INEC. It is indeed a meaningless court order as far as the APC is concerned” Senbo Chris Finebone, the APC Publicity Secretary said in a statement on Wednesday.
“The APC cannot be distracted by the antics of the PDP as we prepare for the conclusion of the remaining rerun elections as will be announced by the INEC” the statement concluded.
