… history repeats once again 

Senator Magnus Abe delivers a deadly upper cut which may keep the APC out of action.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State will not be on the ballot next year when voters head to the polls to elect new leaders.

A Federal High Court presided over by Justice Emmanuel Obile in a ruling in Port Harcourt disqualified all candidates that are fronting for the APC.

Supporters of Senator Magnus Abe had gone to court to challenge processes associated with the emergence of candidates belonging to the Rotimi Amaechi faction on the platform of the APC.

The court held that the plaintiffs have proved that the APC candidates who emerged through the primaries were unfairly picked through a skewed process which excluded other aspirants from the race.

This is the second time that APC would be disqualified by a court at the instance of supporters of Senator Abe.

Recall that in 2018, all APC candidates in Rivers State were thrown out by a court in Port Harcourt.

Those disqualified include the gubernatorial flagbearer of the party, Pastor Tonye Cole who is making a second bid to stand for an election on the platform of the APC.
