The All Progressives Congress (APC) factional governorship candidate in Rivers State, Mr. Tonye Cole, through the spokesman of his Cole/Giadom Campaign Organisation, Ogbonna Nwuke, has urged his supporters not to panic, following what he termed “the deliberate misrepresentation of facts on the social media and elsewhere regarding the outcome” of yesterday’s judgment of the Supreme Court, upholding the ruling of a lower court, barring the party from fielding candidates in the general elections.

The apex court in a unanimous judgment by a five-man panel of Justices, refused to dislodge the judgment delivered by the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt Division .
