A former Caretaker committee chairman of Eleme Local Government, and a Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Eleme, Hon. Prince Awalanta Ejire, has congratulated members and leadership of Rivers State APC over the landmark victory at the supreme court.
He said the supreme court judgement is a resounding judicial vindication of faithful Rivers people who have turmoil for the party, but their effort is deliberately been truncated through series of litigation filed by saboteurs, that the learned justices of the supreme court have finally laid to rest today.
In a statement released on friday, Prince Ejire said “With the unanimous ruling of the reverend justices at the supreme court and court of appeal dismissing the unsolicited appeals by the Hon. Igo Aguma renegade group today, the rule of law came to the defense of democracy by affirming the sovereign will of the people.
The will of the people have been further strengthen thereby preparing majority of the electorates to cast their ballots for their preferred candidate in subsequent election”.
Today is indeed a bright day for the administration of justice for Rivers State and Nigerians. The Supreme court rendered a comprehensive judgment of extraordinary thoroughness, reason and breadth on the many issues presented in this important matter.
And it’s a fine moment for the Nigerian judiciary. As the court did its job by following what is obtainable by law.
As a Nigerian, we can excercise our franchise in any political party, therefore the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not the only registered political party in Rivers State, since Hon. Igo and co. Journey to destabilise our dear party has failed woefully, they should either seek for a genuine forgiveness and subsequently reintegration into the mainstream of Rivers APC, or they choose to pursue their political aspiration in another political platform which is very acceptable.
Similarly, it is in this spirit that we must always seek to resolve even our most stubborn internal differences, so we may emerge a stronger yet more peaceful political party.
As a united family, under the able and pragmatic leadership of the Honourable Minister of Transportation, leader of APC Rivers State and South South, HE. Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi CON, we fought(legally) vigorously to attain this feat just as the Court have affirmed finally.
