Press Release: Ngige appeals Anambra State Tribunal judgement on election petition

988422_10152198671264416_1540145422_nThe Anambra State Election Petition Tribunal headed by Hon Justice Ishaq Bello today in their wisdom dismissed the petition filed by Senator Chris Ngige along with our great party all Nigeria Progressive Congress (APC).
This followed a 12-hour notice of judgement given by the tribunal yesterday fixing the judgement a day ahead of the hearing of our cross appeal at the Supreme Court ,as well as our defence of our Court of Appeal victory in the apex court all connected to issues within the trial.
In some aspects of the judgement the tribunal surprisingly overruled the Court of Appeal.
So far our lawyers have on the basis of the verbal judgement pronounced deciphered numerous grounds of appeal, and are consequently headed for the Court of Appeal.
We have always believed from what we obwerved, heared and perceived that the justice of our well grounded case will be settled in the higher courts of our land.
We have once again been proved right, as we were on February 19, 2014 and February 28, 2014 and March 5, 2014, in the ruling of the tribunal which we eventually won its consolidated appeal in the Court of Appeal on April 15, 2014.
We may in due course make further comments on this judgement, which might as well have been written by our opponents in the litigation.
For the time being, we thank all Nigerians who incidentally are seized of the facts of the sham that took place in Anambra State in the name of elections and the quality of evidence available to the tribunal at the trial, for their moral support and trust that the higher courts will have an opportunity to restore whatever the judiciary has lost by this flawed judgement.
