News Release: Supreme Court Verdict On Rivers State Governorship Matter & Related Issues

The heart of the leadership of International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) is filled with joy and encouragement concerning the latest grounded judgment of the Supreme Court with respect to Rivers State Governorship Election Petition. We also congratulate Governors David Umahi of Ebonyi State and Akinkumni Ambode of Lagos State and people of the two States as well as others over their recent electoral victories at the Supreme Court; fundamentally anchored on the fact that “use of card-readers cannot validly be used to invalidate the results of an election as it is conspicuously not provided in the 2010 Electoral Act or the 1999 Constitution”.
