UAAP Congratulates Hon. Amobi Ogah, Aguocha, Frowns At Appeal Court’s Ruling Against Senator Nwokocha
The leadership of United Abia Artistes and Patriots (UAAP), have congratulated Honorable Amobi Ogah, Honorable Obi Aguocha and Honorable Ginger Onwusibe over their victories at the appellate Court.
The group in a press release signed by it’s Convener, Ambassador Dr. Osita Offor (Ultimate Commander), described the victory of Ogah, Aguocha and Ginger as well deserved, “because they won their elections fair and square.”
The UAAP expressed disappointment at the decision reached by the Appeal Court that purportedly sacked Senator Darlington Nwokocha, senator representing Abia Central senatorial district.
“The Appeal Court victory of Amobi Ogah, Obi Aguocha and Ginger Onwusibe are well deserved. These men won their elections fair and square. The people needed positive change and they saw in these men that change they want and they trooped out in their great numbers to vote for them, it will be criminal for any court of law to deny them victory at the Appeal Court”.
“Honorable Ogah and Aguocha who are both members of UAAP must understand that they don’t have any excuse to fail. We strongly believe that they have all it takes to deliver dividends of democracy to their constituents so that their future political career can be secured” UAAP said.
On the ruling of the Appeal Court that nullified the election of Senator Darlington Nwokocha, the group said;
“The supreme court had made it clear that issue of nomination of candidates are purely an internal matter of the party, we are now wondering why the Appeal Court is taking a decision that is obviously countering the Supreme Court”.
“Is the Appeal Court now higher than the Supreme Court? This judgement must be investigated and a review sort to avoid setting very wrong precedent”.
Osita Offor advised the Labour Party leadership in the state to raise up to the occasion, to be very watchful to avoid “these kinds of kangaroo judgements from emanating again.
Offor warned that any attempt to tamper with the mandate of H.E. Dr. Alex Otti OFR shall be resisted by all sons and daughters of Abia State both home and abroad.
