By Celestine Okeh Abakaliki

Ebonyi state Government has described the appetite court affirmation of the Victory of Governor Francis Nwifuru as a victory for Democracy and a true reflection of the wishes of the people of the state.

In a release by Ebonyi state Commissioner for information and orientation, Engr Jude Chikadibia Okpo, reads in part; 
"The Ebonyi State Government today, Friday November 24, 2023 received the cheering news of the victory of His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Bldr. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru at the Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos.

"There is no gainsaying the fact that the judgement is not only the totality of the reflection of the wishes of Ebonyi People, but also a confirmation of their goodwill through the ballot box in the March 2023 gubernatorial election.

"Like we maintained after the Tribunal's judgement in September, The Court of Appeal's decision today, again, is a victory for all who repose their confidence in His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru and what he can achieve for the State and humanity as Governor.

"When God ordains, no man dares cast down!

"His Excellency's victory has once again reaffirmed the collective choice of Ebonyi people, the overwhelming voice of equity, fairness and justice, which ushered in his resounding victory as governor in the  March 18, 2023 polls.

"This judgement has further strengthened the earlier pronouncement of the tribunal, and given added impetus to the Nigerian judiciary as the bastion of democracy and the last hope of the common man.

"This judgement has further diminished the already drowning voices of opposition in the state thereby opening further doors for all Ebonyians to join the platform of equity and justice, which has so far paid off in addressing the people's charter of needs, bringing development to all sectors of governance in Ebonyi state.

"As Ebonyians celebrate this triumph, I enjoin them to sustain their prayers for His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Bldr. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, knowing that their best wishes for him  are already gradually coming to practical fruition.

"We congratulate those whose lives have been positively touched within these few months in office of His Excellency, and convey our deepest appreciation to God Almighty, whose decision over every mortal is final. 

"We appreciate the Nigerian judiciary for their reassuring position in defence of truth and democracy".
