The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia North Senatorial District has expressed their solidarity for the Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, describing the pro-Uche Ogah judgement of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja in as ‘controversial and contentious’.
A statement issued in Umuahia on Friday by the Chief Press Secretary of the governor, Enyinnaya Appolos, said party also expressed its support and loyalty to the Abia Charter Of Equity.
Their position was contained in a statement jointly signed by over 130 leaders of the party after a stakeholders meeting held in Ohafia.
The resolution was signed by Senator Mao Ohuabunwa (Abia North); Hon. Cosmos Ndukwe, the Deputy Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly; Dr. Eme Okoro, the Secretary to Abia State Government, Hon Osita Igbe; Commissioner for Housing, Hon. Uko Nkole; member representing Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, among others.
They therefore dissociated themselves from Ogah, who hails from the zone, stressing that he wants to throw Abia into a state of anarchy.
They also resolved as follows…
“The controversial and contentious judgment of the Hon. Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja Division came to us as a surprise and a calculated attempt to rock the boat of a smooth sailing government of Abia State under the able leadership of Okezie Victor Ikpeazu (Ph.D)
“That the said judgment, which is misconceived, unresearched and unknown to facts and law defeats all known principles of justice.
“That we totally align with the judgment of Hon. Justice Lewis Allagoa of the Federal High Court, Owerri Division, is well reasoned and well researched both in facts and law thereby vindicating and absolving Okezie Victor Ikpeazu Ph.D of any wrong doing with respect to his tax documents.
“That we dissociate ourselves from the inordinate ambition of Uche Ogah who hails from Abia North and his cohorts, in their bid to throw the state into a state of anarchy.
“That we express our complete solidarity and absolute loyalty to the Government of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu and affirm our faith in the Abia Charter of Equity as enunciated by the founding fathers of Abia State which implies that the office of the Governor of Abia State will rotate among the three senatorial districts of the state.
“That the emergence of Dr Okezie Ikpeazu from Abia South at this time is consistent with the provisions of that Charter, Abia North and Abia Central having taken their turn before in 1999-2007 and 2007-2015 respectively.”
