A Court of Appeal in Abia state declared the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr Alex Otti winner of the State's Governorship election.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia state has warned members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), to stop accusing President Buhari and the party of influencing the Court of Appeal’s verdict in the state.
Speaking to newsmen, the Abia APC chairman, Hon. Donatus Nwankpa said “The APC in Abia State hereby expresses our dissatisfaction over attempts by disgruntled elements to drag the All Progressives Congress (APC) into this drama.
“We are warning people who have been going about mentioning that the APC under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari is influencing what is happening in Abia to as a matter of fact desist forthwith, but that they should face their matters. It is an act of irresponsibility for anybody to have mentioned or accused APC as a party or President Buhari of having anything to do with the Appeal Court judgment delivered at Owerri.”
“We enjoin APGA and PDP to concentrate and ask their legal team to rise up to face the legal battle now lying before the Supreme Court. They should stop dragging the name of the President and APC chieftains to the matter. The two parties should allow the law to have its course,” Nwankpa said.
A Court of Appeal in Abia state ordered Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, to vacate his seat, and subsequently declared the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr Alex Otti, the winner of the State's Governorship election.
