The court order purportedly obtained on Tuesday by the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the release of Tai rerun election results by the Independent national Electoral Commission (INEC) is “not of any consequence,” the All Progressives Congress (APC) said this evening.

Rivers APC Publicity Secretary Chris Finebone said in a statement issued in the state capital, Port Harcourt: “In any case, the Electoral Act 2010, Section 133 sub 1 forbids any courts from questioning INEC in any manner other than by petition complaining of an undue election or undue return presented to competent tribunal or court. Definitely, the Federal High Court the PDP purportedly obtained its order does not qualify to issue such an order on INEC. It is indeed a meaningless court order as far as the APC is concerned.
“The APC cannot be distracted by the antics of the PDP as we prepare for the conclusion of the remaining rerun elections as will be announced by the INEC.”
