Tribunal Sacks Rivers Speaker, 20 Lawmakers

 The Rivers State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja has nullified the election of Rivers State Speaker, Owaji Ibani and 20 other lawmakers in the Rivers State House of Assembly.

According to reports, it will be extremely difficult to get anything done in the 32 lawmakers assembly due to the nullification as the remaining 11 members can not  form a quorum.

Over the weekend, the Rivers State Election Petition Tribunal sacked Gov. Nyesom Wike as the governor of the state and ordered a fresh poll  within 90 days following massive rigging allegedly carried out by the PDP and Wike during last April gubernatorial election in Rivers State.
