The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers on Tuesday hailed the Supreme Court’s verdict on Gov. Nyesom Wike’s application challenging the relocation of the Rivers Election Petitions Tribunal from Port Harcourt to Abuja. Chris FineBone, the State Publicity Secretary of the party, said in a statement in Port Harcourt that the court had affirmed that the tribunal’s sitting was moved to Abuja because of insecurity. It also commended the reason for the relocation of the tribunal to Abuja which was to safeguard the lives of the tribunal chairman, members and witnesses.
The APC also noted with satisfaction that the justices once again have re-affirmed that they are always ready to deliver justice without fear or bias.
