The Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday morning dismissed a suit filed by the African Action Congress (AAC) and three of its members seeking to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission from collating and concluding the results of the March 9, 2019 governorship and House of Assembly Elections in Rivers State.
The collation has commenced and Governor Nyesom Wike of PDP is in clear lead.
Dismissing the suit in a judgment, Justice Inyang Ekwo upheld the preliminary objection filed by the Peoples Democratic Party to challenge the jurisdiction of the court to hear the case.

The judge agreed with the PDP that the Federal High Court lacked jurisdiction to hear the case adjudge to be seeking post-election prayers which could only be entertained by an election petition tribunal.

He held that the suit was an attempt by the plaintiffs to make the court constitute itself into an election petition tribunal.
