Rivers APC threatens to boycott upcoming LG elections

The All Progressives Congress, APC has threatened to boycott the forthcoming Local Government Election in Rivers State.

The election has been scheduled to hold on June the 16th, 2018 but the APC says there are still pending cases in court over the leadership tussle that has rocked the local government areas since 2015.

Chairmen of the 23 Local Government Areas elected under the platform of the APC in Rivers State have been in court challenging their dissolution by the incumbent state government.

They are therefore calling on the State Independent Electoral Commission to suspend all plans to conduct fresh elections pending the final judgment of the court.
