High Chief Ikechi Emenike

The Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Abia State, High Chief Ikechi Emenike has expressed gratitude over the Supreme Court verdict affirming him as the flag bearer of the party in the 2023 general election.

Speaking shortly after the Apex Court delivered its verdict in Abuja, Emenike said it was a very important victory for the good people of Abia State. He said, “This is also very apt, a vote for the rule of law and human decency’.

The APC standard bearer said that 24 cases were filed against him by both members of his party and non party members, adding that it was noteworthy that the Apex Court in the country has repeatedly warned senior lawyers to stop filing frivolous cases in courts and to know when to advise their clients to sheathe the sword.

He said that even with the unprecedented number of court cases instituted from inside and outside his party challenging his governorship ticket, he was never in doubt about the authenticity of his candidacy which according to him was “a product of due process and rule of law”.

The APC governorship hopeful thanked the Justices of the Supreme Court for confirming his candidacy in line with the four different Appeal Court judgements that had all unanimously returned the same verdict that he is the duly elected governorship candidate of APC in Abia.

While extending a hand of fellowship to the former Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, he said, ” Please my brother bury the hatchet and join hands with me to rescue and develop Abia. To me there is no victor, nor vanquished”.

High Chief Ikechi Emenike said: “For those that really love Abia and care for the wellbeing of the people, this is the time to demonstrate it by joining our movement to Rescue and Develop Abia. I bear no grudges or malice against any individual or group that went to Court to ventilate their grievances because they acted within their democratic and constitutional rights. Even our opponents in rival political parties that went to Court seeking to derail our Rescue Movement also acted within their democratic rights”.

While ackowledging that the court cases were distractions, he however, said that he has put all that behind him.

“The most important thing is that truth has triumphed over falsehood, rule of law has triumphed over rule of force and democracy has further strengthened its roots in our Nation,” he added.
