The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has congratulated the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu and his Akwa Ibom State counterpart, Mr. Emmanuel Udom on their victories at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Senator Ekweremadu who hailed the Supreme Court as “the bastion of the nation’s democracy”, said the apex Court’s verdicts on the election petitions “were not only resounding victories for the masses of Abia and Akwa Ibom States, but also for the nation’s democracy in general”.
He added: “By these verdicts, the Supreme Court has, once more, reaffirmed the supremacy of the ballot box over might and propaganda. I commend the Court for upholding the PDP as the overwhelming choice of the people of Abia and Akwa Ibom States and urge my two brothers, Okezie Ikpeazu and Emmanuel Udom, to continue with their uncommon transformation of their respective states even as they extend the olive branch to all political interests in the State”.
He urged the people of both to continue to support their performing governors and the PDP.
