A three-man Court of Appeal panel sitting in Abuja has upheld the ruling of the Rivers State gubernatorial election Tribunal.
In a 110-page ruling delivered by Justice M.B. Dongban-Mensem, the Court ruled that the election of Nyesom Wike did not conform with the electoral act.

In delivering a final ruling, the Court of Appeal decided all the seven issues raised by Governor Wike against in favour of Dakuku Peterside and the All Progressives Congress.
