Okorocha dedicates Appeal Court victory to opponents, Imo people

A former Governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, Owelle Rochas Okorocha has said that his victory at the Appeal Court is for his two brothers, Hon Jones Onyeriri and Senator Osita Izunaso -candidates of PDP and APGA respectively, in the Imo West Senatorial District election, who had challenged his election victory up to the Appeal Court.

Okorocha in a statement by his media aide, Sam Onwuemeodo, in Abuja, also said that his Appeal Court victory is equally for the good people of Imo West Senatorial District and indeed, Imo people in general, who he said, have remained supportive irrespective of their political affiliations.He added that the Appeal Court judgement has also added fibre to the nation’s democracy, because like the tribunal, the Appeal Court was able to detach blackmail from the home truth.

The statement noted that barely one month after the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal had authenticated the victory of the Senator; the Appeal Court Thursday also upheld the judgement of the tribunal in favour of the former governor.
