Uche Ogah celebrates Court Victory as Abia APC’s Authentic Governorship Candidate
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Friday, November 11, declared a former minister of mines and steels development, Uche Ogah, as the authentic governorship candidate for the All Progressives Congress in Abia state.
It was gathered that the court in its judgment affirmed the candidacy of Ogah following a suit filed by the former minister. Ogah in the suit had challenged the substitution of his name by the state chapter of the party with that of High Chief Ikechi Emenike.
However, declaring judgment, Justice Binta Nyako declared Ogah is Abia state’s authentic governorship candidate for the APC ahead of the 2023 general election.
Reacting over the court verdict, Ogah took to his verified Facebook page to thank God for the victory he received at the court.
The former minister said his victory at the court “signposts the confirmation that the judicial arm of government remains the hope of the ordinary man.” In a post titled” With Thanksgiving and Love”, Ogah called on the Abians to unite and change the fortune of the state for good.
It has been quite a journey leading up to this moment and as no hand can cover the sun, justice has prevailed and all glory must be returned to the creator of the universe, the Lord God Almighty. We were not fazed because one with God is the majority, the light will always trounce darkness and truth will always prevail.
At the onset of this episodic distraction, we had to submit ourselves, our victory, and our candidacy to God and judicial interpretation and intervention as it became apparent that forces of evil were bent on truncating the will of the authentic members of our great party, the All Progressives Congress and our intention towards salvaging our dearly beloved Abia State.
Yet we are grateful for the advancement of Nigeria’s legal system which continuously dispenses justice towards the restoration of sanity within our polity even as this victory signposts the confirmation that the judicial arm of government remains the hope of the ordinary man. Indeed we are immensely thankful for this outcome and words alone cannot represent our heartfelt gratitude.
We must unite in the bid to change the fortunes of our dear Abia State hence it is our strongest desire to partner with our brothers who put themselves forward in the concluded gubernatorial primary of our great party, the APC, in Abia State and I most profoundly request they come on board as the ship of our party is set to sail on to victory.
We are indeed grateful to our party members, our teeming supporters, friends, associates, our family members, the great people of Abia State, prayer teams, and all men and women of God all over the world who have tarried with us on this journey towards the delivery of this judgment. Today, we begin the movement towards repositioning our great state and changing the fortunes of our people. God is Alive and He alone continues to rule in the affairs of men.
May the blessings of God Almighty abide with us all.
