2019:End of the Road for Tonye Cole?

This is not the best of time for the All Progressives Congress gubernatorial candidate in Rivers state, Mr. Tonye Cole as Supreme Court has ended his political ambition at least for now.

His joy after the appeal court granted stay of the execution last week was short lived and has turned a Pyrrhic victory.

The Apex Court has upheld the judgement of the High court in Port Harcourt nullifying the primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State.

A five-man panel of justices, presided by Jutsice Mohammed Dattijo on Friday dismissed the objection of the Tonye Cole faction of the APC that it had earlier withdrawn from the appeal against the judgement. 

Recalled that an Appeal Court in Port Harcourt on December 12 dismissed the appeal filed by the Rivers State’s All Progressives Congress’ chairman, Flag Ojukaye, challenging the judgement of High Court’s Justice Chinwendu Nwogu over the conduct of the May ward congresses.

The court also dismissed the appeal filled by APC governorship flag bearer, Tonye Cole, challenging the judgement .

The coast appears to have been cleared for the incumbent governor, Nyesom Wike, who will go into March 2, 2019 gubernatorial election without any serious contender.

For Tonye Cole who stepped down as the chairman of Sahara Energy last year to contest for the Rivers state governorship, what next?

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

    to create a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get anything done.
