Amaechi APC Faction In Rivers State Loses In Supreme Court?

If care is not taken, APC may not have any candidate in Rivers State come 2019, just like Zamfara. The political developments and court rulings so far are not quite positive.

The Supreme Court of Nigeria has set aside the ruling of the Court of Appeal staying further execution of the Order of Interlocutory Injunction restraining the APC from conducting further congresses in Rivers State.

The apex court said allowing APC to retain the outcome of the latter Congresses it conducted would amount to a reward for disobedience.

"How can they ask and be granted a stay of execution of an order they flagrantly disobeyed? The court does not exist to bless the disobedience of those who do no regard and respect it.

"The Supreme Court cannot allow people to benefit from their own stupidity," the apex court ruled.

It would be reccalled that Senator Magnus Abe faction, a governorship candidate under the platform of the APC has dragged the party to court over their unlawful exclusion from the APC congresses that held in the state. 

By this judgment, all actions previously taken by the Ojukaye Flag-Amachree led state executive of the party may just have been thrown into nullity, including all candidates for elective offices in the 2019 General Elections.
