Siminalayi Fubara has been affirmed by the Supreme Court as the duly elected Governor of Rivers State, upholding the Independent National Electoral Commission’s declaration of his victory in the 2023 elections.
The panel, led by Justice Ibrahim Saulawa, dismissed Patrick Tonye-Cole’s appeal, citing it as incompetent and lacking merit, as the appellant failed to substantiate claims of over-voting, non-compliance, and Fubara’s non-qualification for the election.
“This appeal is grossly lacking in merit and liable to be dismissed and it is accordingly dismissed”, Justice Saulawa held.
The highest court later upheld the consistent rulings of the two lower courts, both of which had previously rejected the appeal on the grounds of lacking merit.
