Hearing on the suit filed
by the governorship aspirants of the All Progressives Congress in the just concluded APC primaries in Rivers State against the party’s governorship candidate, Patrick Tonye-Cole and the APC has again suffered a setback before a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt.

The plaintiff, Bernard Mikko is seeking among other things, an order restraining Tonye-Cole from parading himself as the governorship candidate of the APC, his disqualification for alleged questionable character contained in a white paper report of Rivers State Commission of Inquiry and alleged noncompliance with the electoral act during the primaries.
