Gov Ikpeazu To Appeal Sack At Supreme Court

• Tribunal’s Verdict Justice At Last, SaysOtti

ABIA State governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, at the weekend, directed his lawyers to file an appeal at the Supreme Court, following the nullification of his victory by an Appeal Court in Owerri.

Ikpeazu, who read an eight-paragraph statement at government house 7.30pm, said: “I have not received the full briefing on the reason for the decision of the Court of Appeal. But my lawyers are still at the court waiting to obtain a copy of the judgment for further study and it is past 7pm. The next four days are public holidays and the timing of the judgment means we are losing valuable days to study the judgment and file our appeal.

Reacting to the ruling, the gubernatorial candidate on the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr. Alex Otti, said: “Justice has come at last…we have finally recovered the mandate of the people.”

which was brazenly and shamelessly stolen from you a few months ago. This is good news that travels fast. In the past few hours, I have been inundated with calls, text messages and personal visits from many of you. All well-meaning people are rejoicing and there is joy in the land. Praise be to God!
