Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has attributed his victory at the appeal court to God Almighty and the good people of Abia State who voted massively for him during last year gubernatorial election.
The Governor spoke today at the Government house, Umuahia, where he addressed newsmen. The Governor Said that he is grateful that his mandate has been affirmed.
He assured Abians that he will continue to provide dividends of good governance. He also reiterated his hope on the Judiciary which he described as the last hope of the common man.
Dr Ikpeazu thanked those who prayed during this trying time and who are still praying for the good of Abia and said that without prayer, we can achieve nothing.
He promised to always work to promote democracy and democratic principles in the State.
Meanwhile, After the Appeal Judgement today, Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah through his Media Assistance(Peter Agba Kalu) have asked his supporters all over the state and beyond to stay calm and remain law abiding as his legal right to appeal in the judgement has not been Exhausted. He said that next line of action will be made known in details by his legal team
He also asked his supporters to keep praying for the state and his vision to make Abians Rejoice, for in due time trusting God and the Supreme Court, it will come to pass.
Nothing has spoiled yet as all hope is not lost. We still have another final judicial window as a way out. The five Judges today in their wisdom took their decision and as a law abiding person, we respect that.
It is important to note that their ruling was that Justice Okon Abang lacked the jurisdiction to remove Ikpeazu. Not that Ikpeazu’s offences could not warrant his removal. At Supreme Court, the substance of his offences and their consequences would be properly decided on. We will be victorious there. Just trust in the justice of the land and on the Lord.
Let us remember that this project is divine. It will just take time but the end shall be glorious. Let’s continue and never seize until God glorify his name in Abia State as He promised.
