Delta State APC Candidate, Omo-Agege Heads To Supreme Court To Challenge Governor Oborevwori’s Victory

Date:

A former Deputy President of the Senate and governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Ovie Omo-Agege, has said he would approach the Supreme Court to overturn the Court of Appeal judgement which affirmed the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori.

The former lawmaker said this in a statement issued shortly after the appellate court’s decision by his Media Adviser, Mr. Sunny Areh, describing the Court of Appeal’s judgement
as “a redemption deferred for Deltans”.

While implying that he would seek justice at the Supreme Court, Omo-Agege urged his supporters to be peaceful and law-abiding.

He went on to say that “the judiciary which I have absolute confidence in will, at the final hurdle, serve justice and redemption now deferred.”

The statement maintained that Omo-Agege “firmly believes that justice is yet to be given to the people of Delta State who voted for him and the APC.”

The statement partly reads, “We will proceed to the Supreme Court. The issues at stake touch on the future and well-being of the people who voted for a New Delta. We have a duty to respect them by defending their faith in us with every sense of diligence and responsibility. We don’t waver on what is right.

“I am confident that the revered Justices of the Supreme Court will examine the areas overlooked at the Appeal Court and give justice to our people.”

The Court of Appeal, Lagos, had earlier on Friday, in a unanimous judgment, affirmed the election of Oborevwori of the Peoples Democratic Party as the winner of the March 18 poll in the state.

The appellate court held that Omo-Agege’s appeal lacked merit.

Similarly, the appellate court, in a separate judgment, dismissed the appeal by the Labour Party and its governorship candidate, Ken Pela, challenging the lower tribunal judgment and upholding the election of Oborevwori.
