Facts are beginning to unveil on how the kicking out of Mr Nyesom Wike as Governor of Rivers State by the election tribunal was perfected by the Presidency.
According to highly placed sources, one of the strategies used was to move the tribunal from Rivers State to Abuja where they can be ‘remote controlled’ by the centre power and watched closely.
Prior to this, a source confided in this medium that Justice Pindigi who was the first tribunal judge was hurriedly kicked out, after he was alleged to have been compromised financially by Wike, which set the pace for the onslaught that removed Wike.
As soon as Pindigi was shown the way out, we gathered that a judge close to President Muhammadu Buhari was shopped for, to be the Chairman of the Rivers State Election Tribunal.
The dice fell on Justice Suleiman Ambursa, from Kaduna State to perform the complete job of nullifying the election completely instead of the partial nullification that some members of the judges agreed to, stated a source. Ambursa we gathered reliably is married to the President’s wife, Aisha Buhari younger sister.
