Abia Election: APGA Chieftain Hails Appeal Court Judgment

Dr David Onuoha-Bourdex, a member of the Board of Trustees of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has hailed the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Owerri Division on Abia governorship election.
A statement issued by Onuoha-Bourdex on Monday in Abuja, said the court `spoke peace and justice’ to the hearts of Abia people.
Onuoha-Bourdex, who was also the candidate of APGA for the Abia North Senatorial seat in the last election, said that Abia people overwhelmingly voted for APGA.
He commended Dr Alex Otti, the APGA governorship candidate for waging the principled battle for justice.
“I also praised the five-member panel of Appeal Court judges, headed by Justice Oyebisi Omoleye, for taking judicial notice of the fact that the APGA candidate scored 164, 444 valid votes to trounce Ikpeazu of PDP, who scored 114, 444 votes.
“Every living soul in Abia State who saw what happened on April 12, 2015 knew that the cancellation of the elections held in Obingwa, Osisioma Ngwa and Isiala Ngwa local government areas by the returning officers after the results were uploaded to INEC, was wrong.
“The Court of Appeal by its declaration of Dr Otti as winner has wiped the tears on the faces of Abians, especially the young men that were killed for standing strong in the face of intimidation,’’ he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), recalls that the Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri, had on Dec 31, 2015 ordered the swearing in of Otti, as governor of Abia and asked Mr Okezie Ikpeazu to vacate the office.
Ikpeazu indicated interest to challenge the judgment at the Supreme Court. (NAN)
