Chief Nyesom Wike and Dr. Dakuku Peterside, the two main gladiators for the Rivers State governorship seat, will know their fate today. Peterside, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is challenging the declaration of Wike, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as winner of the April 11, 2015 governorship election in the state.

Peterside and APC are seeking the nullification of the ballot on the ground that it was marred by irregularities and fraudulent practices, adding that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) did not conduct it in line with the electoral laws.

Wike and PDP, however, urged the Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, to dismiss the petition for lack of merit.

Final addresses by both parties were adopted by the tribunal on Thursday. The Justice Suleiman Ambursa-led three-man panel adjourned but issued a notice of judgement yesterday.
