Embattled Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and his sponsor, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, whose election was nullified at the weekend by election tribunal in Abuja, head to Court of Appeal today.
Chief Chris Uche, SAN, counsel to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Emmanuel Ukala, SAN, counsel to Gov. Wike, say they will appeal the judgment of the tribunal.
Addressing journalists after the judgment, Uche, SAN, declared that Gov. Wike remains Governor until the appeal processes are exhausted.
“It was wrong of the tribunal to raise heavy weather on the use of card readers when INEC itself admitted that both card readers and manual can be used where there are challenges”, he stated.
