APC, CSOs protest in Rivers

19 July 2016, 18:36

Port Harcourt - Some civil society organizations and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have protested against the alleged corruption by some members of the Rivers State Judiciary.

Protesting at the Rivers State judiciary and Assembly complexes in Port Harcourt, they argued the alleged dishonesty had led to some suspect judicial actions and pronouncements that have stalled the swearing-in of Victoria Nyeche of Port Harcourt Constituency and Andrew Miller of Opobo/Nkoro Constituency both in the Rivers State House of Assembly (RSHA).

The crowd led by civil society leaders and APC chieftains marched to the gate of the judiciary and later moved to the RSHA where the leaders addressed the crowd.

APC spokesperson for the region, Chris Finebone, said despite various tribunal and appeal court rulings declaring the two APC members winners of their State Constituency elections and subsequent issuance of Certificate of Return by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC), the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly has refused to swear the two individuals into office.

They said authorities hinged the action on purported pronouncements of certain courts in Rivers State.
