Otti: APGA chieftain hails judgment, says party will win in more states
Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka

IGBO leader, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka has applauded the Appeal Court judgment, which declared candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Alex Otti, as winner of Abia State governorship election held on April 11 and April 25, 2015. Ezeonwuka described the judg­ment as a true reflection of the people's votes and a New Year blessing for the state.

The Governorship Election Appeal Tribunal sitting in Owerri, Imo State nullified the election of Abia Gov­ernor, Okezie Ikpeazu and declared Dr. Otti of APGA, winner of the April 11 and April 25 supplementary elec­tions.

The five-member panel, headed by Justice Oyebisi Omoleye, annulled the election on grounds of substantial non-compliance with the electoral law.

Ezeonwuka, a member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of APGA said with the victory, Abia was reborn and added that the emergence of an APGA governor marked the beginning of freedom of democracy and good gover­nance that the people of the state had yearned for.

Reacting to Governor Ikpeazu's decision to drag the case to Supreme Court, he added, "as Ogirisi Igbo, I am bold enough to predict and express the hope that the Supreme Court will uphold the judgment of the Appeal Court.

"Personally, as Ogirisi Igbo, I am vindicated because I predicted that Otti will win the election and liberate Abia from the shackles of PDP and he won as the Appeal Court has rightly declared."
