Abia tri­bunal ver­dict: APGA heads to ap­peal court

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Li­nus Ef­fiong, Umuahia

Fol­low­ing the re­cent judg­ments by the Na­tional Assem­bly Elec­tion Tri­bunal in Abia State, which recorded sev­eral vic­to­ries for the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), the Na­tional Chair­man of the All Pro­gres­sive Grand Al­liance (APGA), Chief Vic­tor Ike Oye, said they would move to the ap­peal court to seek re­dress.

Oye won­dered why the tri­bunal dis­missed all the pe­ti­tions of their can­di­dates in the last Na­tional Assem­bly elec­tion.

The na­tional chair­man an­nounced the re­solve of his party at a press con­fer­ence in Umuahia, Abia State cap­i­tal.

He said: “There is anger ev­ery­where in the state; the peo­ple are not happy with some of the out­comes of the tri­bunal. As law abid­ing cit­i­zens, we will take this mat­ter to a log­i­cal con­clu­sion. We will not in­sult the ju­di­ciary, it’s not the style of APGA. We will seek reme­dies in the Court of Ap­peal. Our party feels very strongly with some of the judg­ments, but we can­not do any­thing. PDP will meet us in the court,” he said.
