The Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos has affirmed the election of Governor Siminalayi Fubara of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 18 governorship election in Rivers State.

The Appeal Court in a unanimous judgement on Tuesday dismissed four separate appeals filed by Tonye Cole of All Progressive Congress (APC), Beatrice Itubo of the Labour Party (LP), Innocent Ekwu of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), and Lulu Briggs Dumo of the Accord Party.

The court held that all the appellants failed to prove the allegation of non-compliance with the Electoral Act.
