Youths In Fubara’s Village Dismantle Wike’s Billboard After Supreme Court Verdict
Following the Supreme Court’s declaration of Fubara as the duly elected Governor of Rivers State, enraged youths in Fubara’s village took down a billboard featuring former Governor Nyesom Wike.
The court dismissed the challenge by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Patrick Tonye-Cole, who contested Fubara’s victory, claiming he didn’t resign as the accountant general of Rivers State before the election.
The Supreme Court panel upheld Fubara’s victory, with Justice Ibrahim Saulawa stating that the appellant failed to prove allegations of over-voting, non-compliance, and non-qualification of Fubara for the election.
The angered residents described Wike as “evil” in a video circulating online.
