Tribunal Orders Nyesom Wike Removed as Rivers Governor


The Rivers State Election Petition Tribunal has delivered a ruling that sees Nyesom Wike removed as the Governor of Rivers State.

The ruling was made in Abuja on Saturday and will see a fresh governorship election conducted in the state. The rerun date has not be said. 

The Rivers state governorship election was widely criticized as having a lot of electoral fraud and was also marred with violence in certain areas. 

The petition that brought about this decision was filed by Dakuku Peterside, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the election.
