The former Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has rejected the decision of an Abuja Federal High Court which dismissed his application to claim the 3-man Ad-Hoc Delegate election.
Ekweremadu and his team had approached the court to force the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to accept their own list as the authentic delegate list.
But the court in a judgement delivered on Tuesday, 24th May dismissed the application.
In a statement issued by his campaign organization, said the decision of the Court came to them as a “shock” adding that they would appeal the decision.
The statement signed by Hon Ogbo Charles Asogwa, Director-General, Ikeoha Campaign Organisation reads:
“The Ikeoha Campaign Organisation received with shock the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja, dismissing the suit seeking to uphold the list of three-man ad-hoc that truly emanated in compliance to the PDP Constitution and Guidelines for the Election of Three-Man Delegates and National Delegates in the 30th April 2022 Ward Congress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Enugu State.
“However, we appeal to our supporters to remain calm, as this is just the court of first instance. Our lawyers have been directed to immediately file a Notice of Appeal against the judgment and we will surely pursue the matter to a logical conclusion.
“We trust God and believe that victory will be ours eventually, for no matter how fast falsehood and injustice appear to travel, truth and justice will ultimately overtake both in the fullness of time.
