More trouble for APC as court sacks governorship candidate in Cross River



Even as the All Progressives Congress cannot field a candidate for the governorship election in Rivers State and it is still battling to have the opportunity in Zamfara, the Federal High Court sitting in Calabar has sacked its governorship candidate, Senator John Owan-Enoh.

It also sacked other candidates of the party currently recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

According to the judge, Hon Justice Simon Amobeda  INEC should only receive and accept the names and candidates for the 2019 elections that emerged from the lawful executive led by Godwin Etim John.

The court also sacked the leadership of the party led by Mr. John Ochalla.

He also ordered that persons parading themselves as the executive members of the APC in Cross River State should forthwith cease and that the lawful executive of APC in Cross River State is the one led by Godwin Etim John.
