The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal of Tonye Cole and the APC against the election of Siminalayi Fubara as Governor of Rivers State for lacking in merit.

The court held that the appellants failed to prove the issues bordering on non-compliance with the Electoral Act.

Tonye Cole, who was the APC candidate in the March 18, 2023 election, was challenging the victory of Governor Fubara on the ground that he did not resign as the accountant general of rivers state before the election.

Cole also cited alleged irregularities, non compliance with the Electoral Act, corrupt practices among others.
