Rivers LP's nominee for governor goes to the Supreme Court

Rivers LP's nominee for governor goes to the Supreme CourtBeatrice Itubo, the Labour Party's candidate for governor of Rivers State on March 18, announced that she has instructed her legal team to appeal the Appeal Court's decision to the Supreme Court.

Remember that Tonye Cole, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for governor, and Itubo's appeal were both denied by a three-person panel of Appeal Court justices recently for being without merit.

In response to the ruling, Itubo stated during a discussion with the South-South Youth Initiative leadership that while she approves with Governor Siminalayi Fubara's actions, she has chosen to appeal the ruling in order to guarantee that justice is done.

She emphasized that she and the state's current governor are on good terms and expressed concern about the direction the balance may tilt, but she also wants to make sure she sees through the judicial system to its conclusion. "I am a person who believes in justice," the woman declared. And the reason I believe in justice is that I want things done correctly.

"Yes, I don't have any personal problems or resentment with the state's current governor. If nothing else, our backgrounds are similar—we are both from the civil service. 

Although neither he nor I are core politicians, things still need to be done correctly.

"We have listened to the ruling and have requested a Certified True Copy (CTC) of the ruling. 

I have instructed the attorneys to start the appeals procedure so that we may take the case all the way to the Supreme Court.

"Let it be on record that we pursued this road to the letter; right or left, justice is what we desire. 

I'm not saying we have to go there to seek justice because we have seen how things are going.
