The 2023 Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Abia State, Okey Ahiwe, has reacted to the judgement of the state Election Petitions Tribunal, which upheld the election of Alex Otti as the duly elected Governor of the state in the March 18, 2023 Governorship election.
Ahiwe, who reacted to the Friday tribunal judgement in a statement signed by his media adviser, Victor Nwokocha shortly after the tribunal’s judgement, expressed profound appreciation to his numerous supporters across the State, his legal team, family, friends and associates for their support.
The PDP chieftain in the statement, was quoted urging his supporters, legal team and family members that “there is no cause for alarm regarding the tribunal verdict as truth and justice will ultimately triumph.”
Expressing his confidence in the Judiciary, the PDP candidate said his legal team would thoroughly examine the judgment of the tribunal and advise him accordingly on the next line of action.
“Chief Ahiwe called on his teeming supporters to remain calm and law-abiding, assuring that, following due consultations with his legal team and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, leadership, he would keep them informed on the direction to take”, the statement said.
