Supreme Court Judgement: Close ranks with govt to develop Ebonyi – APC to opposition


The Ebonyi State chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Stanley Okoro-Emegha, has described the Supreme Court victory of Governor Francis Nwifuru as an affirmation of the mandate given to him by voters on the March 18, 2023 governorship election.

Okoro-Emegha stated this on Friday in Abakaliki while reacting to the victory of the party at the Supreme Court in a chat with newsmen.

The chairman commended the justices of the Supreme Court for upholding the election victory of Gov. Francis Nwifuru.

The chieftain who celebrated the victory described the judgement as a ‘landmark’ victory and called on the opposition parties to close ranks with the governor to move the state forward.

“We never lost any sleep on the outcome of the Supreme Court case because we had a good case and had earlier won at the tribunal and Appeal Court.


“The judgement has brought to a definite end the election litigation and the governor can settle down for the business of governance.

“The victory represents not only a victory for democracy but for the entire Ebonyi electorate that voted massively to elect Nwifuru.

“The judgement shows that the judiciary remains the last hope of the ‘common man’ and it just confirmed the decision of the Ebonyi voters in 2023.

“The governor has been in the service, first as speaker and he knows the needs of the people and he will just continue what he has already started,” Okoro-Emegha said.
