Imo West Tribunal Judgement A Temporary Set Back – Hon Nwawuba

Published

on

Member of the House of Representatives, Hon Henry Nwawuba, has expressed disappointment at the judgement of the National Assembly Electoral Tribunal which dismissed the petition of Hon. Jones Onyereri challenging the victory of the immediate past Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha.

In a press statement issued in Abuja, Nwawuba lamented the outcome of the judgement which according to him, has tacitly endorsed thuggery and brigandage in the electoral process.

Nigerians will recall that a new dimension was introduced in politics in Imo West Senatorial District where a returning officer was hijacked and forced to declare Former Governor Okorocha winner at gun point. Even the electoral umpire, INEC stated this fact in its official report.

The lawmaker who represents Mbatoili/Ikeduru Federal Constituency of the state

wondered what facts were relied upon by the Tribunal in reaching its conclusion when all material evidences on ground point to a gross abuse of the process culminating in the sham declaration of Okorocha as Senator.

According to him, “The incontrovertible fact on ground is that Okorocha based on his dismal performance in office as Governor for eight years made him unelectable and this accounts for his employment of the dark arts to be declared winner”.

He however called on the people of Imo west Senatorial District to remain calm and expressed hope that the quicksand judgement will be reversed at the Appeal Court and Hon Jones Onyereri will assume his rightful place as the Senator Representing them.
