The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State has expressed its disapproval of the Appeal Court’s ruling on the state’s gubernatorial election.
The party has declared its intention to contest this decision at the highest court.
In an official statement released by the Publicity Secretary, Barrister Valentine Onojeghuo, the APC remains confident that the mandate bestowed upon it by the state’s citizens, who endorse its commendable initiatives and the capabilities of its candidate, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, will ultimately be reinstated.
Acknowledging the efforts of its legal team, the party remains optimistic about a favorable outcome at the apex court, citing a robust case that strengthens its prospects for a positive judgment.
While commending its members for their steadfastness, support and loyalty, the party prevailed on them to remain calm and hopeful, assuring them that “there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
The statement further emphasised that “our stolen mandate will surely be restored. It is only a matter of time.”
The APC said the judgment of the Appeal Court cannot stand the test of time.
“We have no iota of doubt that we shall reclaim our mandate at the Supreme Court. We have absolute confidence in the apex court to do justice to our case,” it said.
