…As Amaechi Carpets Omehia in Supreme Court
The Nigerian Supreme Court has dismissed the case of Mr Celestine Omehia against the election of Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi for lack of merit.
In a unanimous ruling in Abuja on Thursday, the apex court said Omehia’s case had no merit to attract the attention of the court even as it quashed the ruling of an Appeal Court, which had granted Omehia’s prayer to be joined in the case.
Reacting to the ruling, the Rivers states All Progressives Congress (APC) commended the justices of the court as it thrashed Mr Omehia and his cohorts who had thought the ruling will favour them to remove Governor Amaechi before expiration of his tenure in 2015.
A statement issued by the Rivers Interim Publicity Secretary of APC Chief Eze said:
“Today’s Supreme Court ruling apart from its historical verdict that will give Gov.Amaechi time to address the major issue of governance in Rivers State, it once again put to rest all the evil plots to unseat him before 2015 and unsettles those who play god in human affairs.
“Gov Amaechi has proven that he is the enigma and mystery of Nigerian politics. I am happy and proud to be associated with the current light of our political struggle to free Nigeria and Nigerians form the hands of undemocratic elements in our nation”
“With today’s Supreme Court loss, it (APC) can safely be said that Omehia and his new master Chief Wike are politically finished as far as Rivers State is concerned. This should serve as a warning to all those who insist on the way of the moving train known as Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.”
