Senator Dickson

A Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has ruled that Senator Seriake Dickson has a case to answer in a suit seeking to disqualify him from contesting the concluded Bayelsa West Senatorial election.

The court on Thursday, January 7, faulted the decision of the Federal High Court for dismissing the suit against Dickson.

Ruling, a three-man panel of the court stated that the lower court was wrong to have arrived at its decision.

Presided over by Justice U. Onyemenam, the panel ordered the suit to be reassigned to another Federal High Court judge.

Dickson’s senatorial victory is being challenged by Owoupele Eneoriekumoh who alleged that the former governor submitted false and forged information to the electoral commission.
