Otti appeals tribunal ruling on Ikpeazu’s victory



The Abia State All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate in the April gubernatorial election, Dr. Alex Otti, has filed a notice of appeal seeking to upturn the State Election Tribunal’s judgment that upheld the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, governor Okezie Ikpeazu.

Otti’s counsel, Mr. Oracle Nwala, said this in Umuahia, yesterday, noting that Otti took the decision to challenge the tribunal’s verdict after “consulting with leaders of APGA, major stakeholders and a cross-section of the people of the state who voted massively for him during the election.”

Nwala, who expressed optimism that the Court of Appeal would grant Otti’s prayer to be declared the winner of the poll said, “Otti has implicit confidence in the ability of the judiciary to assuage the yearning desire for justice by the people of Abia, who voted for him to bring about positive change and transform their lives.”
