The duly nominated candidates of the (APC) in Rivers say there will be no national, state and governorship elections in the state if INEC fails to relist them.

Mr Henry Odili, APC candidate for Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni-Ahoada/West Federal Constituency made the assertion at the news conference organized by the delisted APC candidates in Port Harcourt on Thursday.

Odili said that there was no court order stopping the primary elections that that produced them as candidates.

He alleged that Gov. and the (PDP) had boasted that the APC would not have candidates in Rivers before the State High Court gave judgment that nullified the primary elections.

“The electoral law was crafted such that the courts will not interfere with the electoral process but the courts in Rivers have willfully violated this.

“And this is affecting the rights of Rivers people to freely choose their leaders and representatives,” he said.
