The Federal High Court Port Harcourt also ruled that those whose names were submitted as having been elected from the primaries should not be recognised as validly-elected candidates for the APC in the state.
Reacting to the development via his Facebook page, Cole said he is undeterred and that “the APC will be on the ballot come 2023”.
“My Rivers people, I want to commend all of you for your strength, love and trust in this challenging time.
“I want to assure you all that the APC will be on the ballot come 2023, they can only try to disrupt our momentum, but we move #ForwardWithCourage. That’s the motivating force of the New Rivers State!
