Governor Nyesom Wike has been relieved of his gubernatorial duties by an appeal court ruling.
The court of appeal has struck out the appeal of Nyesom Wike seeking a dismissal of the judgment of the Rivers election petition tribunal which sacked him as governor of the state.
It can be recalled that in October, the tribunal had held that Wike was not duly elected governor of Rivers state.
A three-man Court of Appeal panel sitting Abuja, upheld the ruling of the gubernatorial election in Rivers state.
In a 110-page ruling delivered by Justice M.B. Dongban-Mensem, the Court ruled that the election of Nyesom Wike did not conform with the electoral act.
The Court has ordered a rerun in 90 days.
In delivering a final ruling, the Court of Appeal struck out all the seven issues raised by Governor Wike in favour of Dakuku Peterside and the All Progressives Congress party
