Ebonyi APC Chair Applauds A'Court Verdict On Abia North

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi State, Chief Stanley Okoro-Emegha, has  applauded the apeal ruling on Abia North Senatorial zone which upheld the Victory of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu   (APC–Abia North) urging to to use his appeal court victory to consolidate on his gains at the Senate.

Recall that the Court of Appeal, Lagos division, recently affirmed Kalu as the duly elected senator representing Abia North at the National Assembly.

The court upheld the judgment of national and state assembly petition tribunal which dismissed the petitions against Kalu as lacking in merit.
Chief Emegha noted that the affirmation testified the acceptance of Kalu by his people.

“I hail from Ebonyi and Kalu from Abia but I submit that the appeal court justified the trust reposed in the judiciary by Nigerians.
“The Abia North constituents massively voted for Kalu, Chief Whip of the ninth Senate and it had never been in doubt,” he said.

The APC chairman, who was an aide to Kalu as Abia governor, urged him to use the opportunity to consolidate on his gains at the Senate.

Chief Louis Elekwa, a businessman, also hailed the ruling, noting that his community also benefited from Kalu’s effective representation of his people.
“My community borders some areas in Kalu’s senatorial district and enjoy his massive interventions in roads and agricultural endeavours,” he said.

Mrs Juliet Nmereole, a teacher, urged Kalu not to be discouraged by his non-election as a principal officer of the present Senate.

“He should instead be mindful that his people are solidly behind him and offer effective representation to them and entire Nigeria,” she said.
