Rivers PDP Gov Aspirant Criticizes Primary, Sues Candidate, Party

Morgan Tom-West, a former Peoples Democratic Party candidate for governor of Rivers State in the most recent primary, has filed a lawsuit against the party, Siminialayi Fubara, and the party before a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt.

Tom-West is requesting in the lawsuit that the court issue an injunction preventing the Independent National Electoral Commission from recognizing Fubara as the PDP’s nominee for governor in the state.

Additionally, he is pleading with the court to stop the PDP from designating Fubara as the party’s candidate and submitting his name to INEC.

Tom-West stated that Fubara was created through a flawed process.

This was stated in a 61-paragraph document that Ibrahim Idaiye, the plaintiff’s attorney, submitted.

According to the lawsuit, PDP proclaimed Fubara’s name as the winner in violation of the requirements and regulations of the Electoral Act 2022.

According to the affidavit seen by our correspondent, Fubara, who has been declared the PDP’s governorship candidate, did not receive a majority of the delegates’ votes during the governorship primary held on May 25, 2022. As a result, Fubara requested that the court disqualify him in the interest of justice and fairness.
