Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) expressed confidence the election tribunal will rule in its candidate's favour in the contentious Rivers State governorship election.
People's Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Nyesom Wike, was declared the winner of the poll ahead of the APC's Dakuku Peterside.
APC is contesting the outcome of the election whose conduct some local and international observers denounced.
"We are with the good people of Rivers State and we shall stop at nothing to ensure that the mandate which they freely gave to the APC and our gubernatorial candidate, Dr Dakuku Peterside, is recovered through the due process of the election petition tribunal," APC Rivers chairman, Davies Ikanya said.

APC is challenging the results of the Rivers governorship election alongside the outcomes of polls in Akwa Ibom and Delta States.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, differences between the APC and the PDP spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, took a new twist with the controversy surrounding the polls taking centre stage.
APC called for the arrest of Metuh alleging he had incited members and supporters of PDP to violence amid the disputed governorship elections.
"Olisa Metuh clearly crossed the line while addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday," Ikanya said.
"His threat that PDP members across the country are willing and ready to take the laws into their hands if necessary to defend the party's fictional mandate in Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Delta states is obviously a call to violence. Metuh should be invited for questioning by relevant security agencies and prosecuted for his vitriolic utterances."
