The Court of Appeal in Owerri, Imo State has affirmed the election of the immediate past Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha as the senator, representing Imo West, even as he said that he had forgiven those who Sabotaged and blackmailed his electoral victory on February 23.
Okorocha, who contested the election on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, called fellow Senators, Osita Izunaso and Jones Onyereri of the Peoples Democratic Party to join him to deliver the dividends of democracy to Imo West people.
In a statement he issued today, November 7, Okorocha said that his victory at the Appeal Court is for his two brothers, Hon Jones Onyeriri and Senator Osita Izunaso, candidates of PDP and APGA respectively, in the Imo West Senatorial District election, who had challenged his victory up to the Appeal Court.
Senator Okorocha said that his Appeal Court victory is equally for the good people of Imo West Senatorial District and indeed, Imo people in general, who he said, have remained supportive irrespective of their political affiliations.
He said that the Appeal Court judgement has also added fibre to the nation’s democracy, because it was able to detach blackmail from the home truth.
Barely one month after the National Assembly Election Tribunal had authenticated the election victory of the distinguished senator, the Appeal Court on Thursday, November 7, 2019 (today) also upheld the judgement of the tribunal in favour of the former governor.
Okorocha described the judiciary as a blessing to the nation’s democracy and said that he would remain thankful to the judiciary for playing a leading role in deepening the nation’s democracy and its ethos.
The former governor assured that he would continue to use God-given positions to serve God and humanity.
