Court dismisses lawsuit against Rivers PDP Governorship candidate

Nov 4, 2022

A lawsuit seeking to disqualify the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Siminalaye Fubara from contesting the 2023 elections, has been dismissed by a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt.


The lawsuit was filed by an aspirant of the PDP, Chief Morgan West. He had alleged that Fubara was not a member of the party and did not have a valid PDP membership card, among other issues.


Ruling on the case on Friday, November 4, , Justice Adamu T. Mohammed struck out the lawsuit on grounds of incompetence and lack of jurisdiction.
