The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has formally filed an appeal against the judgment of the Rivers State Governorship Election Tribunal nullifying the election of Governor Nyesom Wike.
The Electoral Body filed her appeal dated 4th of November, 2015 at the Court of Appeal, Abuja Judicial Division on Thursday.
In a 12-ground appeal filed on behalf of the INEC by her counsel, Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN, the Electoral body challenged the entirety of the tribunal’s judgment.
Members pledged their loyalty to Pa Fasoranti and resolved to return to the path of its founding fathers.
The move to reorganise the group trailed a similar effort by Fasoranti’s predecessor, the late Senator Abraham Adesanya, who set up the Akande Reforms Committee.
But, the committee headed by former Osun State Governor Bisi Akande did not see the light of day.
A source said: “We saw reasons with Pa Fasoranti and we deliberated on his complaints.
“He wants every member to show commitment and pursue the goals that warranted the setting up of the Action Group (AG), which is Afenifere.
“He wants members to pursue the ideals of the founding fathers.
“Afenifere has set up a committee on reorganisation. The committee will make suggestions on reforms.”
On membership drive, the source said: “We are making efforts to persuade inactive members and leaders to return to the fold.
“A former Ogun State governor, who was part of the Fasanmi group, has now returned to Afenifere.
“Although he did not attend the Akure meeting, he sent his apologies.”
