Court Removes Accord Party’s Rivers Guber Candidate

A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Thursday removed Dumo Lulu-Briggs as the governorship candidate of Accord Party in the state.

Justice E. A. Obile ruled that Precious Baridon remained the party’s authentic candidate.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had challenged the nomination of Lulu-Briggs as the party’s candidate, saying he had failed to meet the requirement of INEC in the primaries.

Dumo Lulu-Briggs, an oil magnate, led members of his former party, the All Progressives Congress to the Accord Party after losing the Governorship ticket to Tonye Cole.
