The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State has already lost out in February 16 and March 2 elections even before voting following Court judgment which the Independent National Electoral Commission lashed on on Thursday to exclude the names of presidential, senatorial and House of Representatives candidates of the party pin the state.
While the list contains details of candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Accord Party, Labour Party, Social Democratic Party and Green Party of Nigeria, among others, those of the state APC were conspicuously missing.
Recall that the State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Obo Effanga, had maintained that INEC would abide by the directives of the court since it was a creation of the law.
Effanga said while responding to an order by a Federal High Court that INEC should expunge the names of APC candidates in the state from its list ahead of the 2019 elections.
The state REC had stated that the Commission would not hesitate to do anything it was ordered to do by the court.
