Rochas Okorocha
Chidiebube Okeoma

The Peoples Democratic Party candidate in Imo West, Jones Onyereri, has described as ‘slaughtering of justice’ the judgment of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue Rochas Okorocha certificate of return.

But the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance in the state, Uche Nwosu, described the ruling as a defender of constitution and democracy.

Speaking with journalists in Owerri, the Imo State capital, Nwosu said the judiciary had continued to ‘preserve our democracy.”

He said, “The judiciary has shown that it is the last hope of the common man. The landmark judgement has shown that no matter how hard you try to suppress the truth, justice will always prevail.”

A statement in Owerri, the state capital, by the Director General, Jones Onyereri Campaign Organisation, Eze Ugochukwu, shortly after the judgment was delivered, accused Abang of bias in the matter.

Describing the judgement as a ‘nauseating decision’, the PDP candidate said he would appeal the judgment.

He accused Justice Abang of intimidating and harassing defence lawyers while allowing the plaintiff to have “a field day in court.”

The statement read in part, “We are not surprised by the decision of the Abuja High Court 7, presided over by Justice Okon Abang.

“Right from the commencement of the ex-parte application by Owelle Rochas Okorocha against INEC, the inevitability of the judgement was obvious.

“The handling of the case from the start, left much to be desired, as issues of obvious bias were not hidden, including suspension and abridgement of rules of court, overt intimidation of defence lawyers, and harassment of same; whereas the plaintiff lawyer was allowed a field day in court.

“The reality is that the decision came from a court of first instance. “Therefore, the decision stands to be tested at the appellate courts while the trial at the tribunal goes on.”

APC and EFCC found corrupt money on Okon Abang instead of prosecuting him they are using blackmail to hold him ransom to continue to do their bidding

Let's not forget he's the reason why buhari is holding El Zakzaki hostage till now.

He denied the old man bail at the federal high court level, but as usual appeal court canceled the brainless judgment and ask the federal government to release the old man on bail.

After all PDP members nationwide have to reject Sheriff as their chairman, justice Okon Abang did his wonders by declaring Sheriff the right PDP chairman.

Of course as usual Appeal court did the needful

Once an election has been declared,all aggrieved parties goes to the tribunal. Only the tribunal can upturn that result. Inec should have given Okorocha his certificate of return and sue him differently for holding her officer hostage,maybe they would have had a better case.

APC and Buhari has finished this country, in fact nothing is leftangry

Did any of you attended the CBN Governor's round table discussion with stakeholders and entrepreneurs yesterday

The only man that made sense among all the speakers was founder of Stanbic IBTC Bank, Peterside!!

He told CBN, Buhari, Dangote and others that they are killing Nigerian youths!

He said, we the old influential and privileged Nigerians who are successful and in power today enjoyed a lot of benefits as youths while growing up, but today, the Nigerian youths are not enjoying any of the numerous good benefits we enjoyed in our time, we make things difficult for today youths, we make it difficult for them to succeed in business, and in securing jobs.

He said: CBN governor, please you and your team should go and think of how to help the Nigerian youths grow because unemployment is killing our youths and the government love bulldozing and destroying Nigerian youth businesses!


That man should be made Nigerian youth speaker!!

Wrong, you don't reward criminality. If they give him that certificate it will become normal for politicians to use thugs with guns on election officers head to declare them a winner in an election.

Cos it will become part of our law that there was a judgment that supports such an act.

Okorocha knows he can't win elections in Imo state again, how can you enrich yourself and family and make other people's life hell and still want to win senate. To go and represent who?

INEC said they declared under duress. Certainly that's not free and fair
