Cross Rivers State governor Ben Ayade floors opponent at Supreme Court

The Supreme Court in Abuja today affirmed the election of Ben Ayade as the executive governor of Cross Rivers State. The Supreme Court received an application by a former governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Joe Agi, to disqualify Ayade (also of the PDP) over age falsification claims.

However, Agi’s case was struck out on lack of merits and Ayade re-affirmed as the governor of the state.
