Court Sacks Governorship Candidate Less Than 10 Days To Election

A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt and presided over by Justice E.A. Obile, has sacked the Rivers state governorship candidate for Accord Party, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs.

He was sacked on the grounds that he was not the authentic candidate for the party.

Dumo Lulu-Briggs was therefore replaced with Mr. Precious Baridoo, who was said to have won the governorship ticket of the party at the party’s primary elections.

Justice Obile in his judgement said that  as at the time of the party’s primaries, Lulu- Briggs was still a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress(APC).
