A’Court Judgement: Stay Calm, We’ll Get Justice At S’Court – Omo-Agege Tells Supporters

By Avwerosuo Akpobome

Former Deputy President of the Senate and governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress in Delta State, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has appealed to his supporters to remain calm and law-abiding, As he hints that he would proceed to the Supreme Court for justice.

Ovie Omo-Agege, who described Friday’s judgment of the Court of Appeal in the appeal he filed against Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State as “a redemption deferred for Deltans”, said the judiciary which he has absolute confidence in will, at the final hurdle, serve justice and redemption now deferred.

This was contained in a statement issued shortly after the appellate court’s decision by his Media Adviser, Mr. Sunny Areh, copies of which were made available to journalists in Warri, Delta State.

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.
