A factional chairman of All Progressives Congress in Enugu State, Okey Ogbodo, has welcomed the Federal High Court judgement that sacked Senator Ayogu Eze and declared Barr. George Ogara as the governorship candidate of the party in the state.
Ogbodo, who was reacting to the judgement of an Abuja Federal High Court, described it as a good development, restating that it was only Barr. George Ogara that actually contested in the he election.
He said, “The judgement is a good development. I have always believed and trusted in the judiciary. I believe in our justice system and I know that the truth will always come out.”
“The only person that actually contested was George Ogara, while the other people went to hotel and wrote names. Thank God the truth has finally come out,” he said.
Ogbodo said that the country would be a better place if the judiciary continued with the truth, while expressing the determination of APC to win the gubernatorial election in the state.
“PDP has failed woefully; so, with the victory of Ogara, the battle has been won,” Ogbodo continued.
But in a reaction to the development, Senator Eze’s Chief Campaign Spokesperson, Mr. Okey Ezirigwe, said the governorship candidate would appeal the court judgement.
Ezirigwe, in a statement, said the campaign organisation would continue its political programme in spite of the court order.
