Ekweremadu’s camp to appeal court ruling over Enugu delegates’ list
Supporters of former Deputy Senate president and governorship aspirant in the 2023 general elections in Enugu State, Ike Ekweremadu, said, yesterday, that they would appeal the Federal High Court, Abuja, decision dismissing the suit they filed to uphold the list of three-man ad hoc delegates in the state.
The court had dismissed the suit brought by supporters of Ekweremadu as ‘inconsequential’ a development that had elicited joyful reactions from the camp of the state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, yesterday.
In a statement by the Director-General, Ikeoha Campaign Organisation, Charles Asogwa, issued in Enugu, the supporters, who showed dissatisfaction with the stand of the court, claimed that there were candidates that emerged from the delegates’ election, stressing that they had asked their lawyers to challenge the court decision.
They insisted that they truly emanated in compliance with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Constitution and Guidelines for the election of three-man delegates and national delegates on April 30, 2022, ward congress of the PDP in the state.
They, however, appealed to their supporters to remain calm, “as this is just the court of the 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.”
