The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun has said that something is fundamentally wrong in the judiciary.

Oyegun made the comment in reaction to the Supreme Court’s recent confirmation of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike’s April 11, 2015 election victory.

“I still find the judgment on the Rivers State governorship election totally astonishing. There is something fundamentally wrong in the Judiciary,” the APC Chairman said in Abuja on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, while receiving a delegation of party members from Rivers.

“We have lost very important resource-rich states to the PDP. No matter how crude oil prices have fallen, it is still the most important revenue earner for the country.

“There is obviously something fundamentally wrong in Rivers state which needs to be investigated and addressed," he added.

Wike’s election victory was upheld by the apex court on January 27, 2016.
