ABUJA - The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck out an appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress to challenge the judgment of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt prohibiting  the party from fielding  candidates in Rivers State for the general elections. 
Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour-led bench of the supreme court struck out one of the appeals by the APC after upholding the preliminary objection filed against it by a group of 22 members of the party loyal to Senator Magnus Abe in the state hence remaining three more appeals.
However, the 22 party members led by Ibrahim Umar, is challenging the emergence of Tony Cole as the governorship candidate of the party in the state.
Delivering the lead ruling of the five-man bench of the final court on the APC’s appeal on Tuesday, Justice Amir Sanusi said the preliminary objection by the respondents was meritorious.
Justice Sanusi said that the apex court’s reasons for striking out the suit would be submitted on a date to be communicated to parties to the suit.
