…begs Omegara to withdraw petition

The member representing Okigwe North Federal Constituency at the House
of Representatives, Engr. Obinna Onwubuariri is currently living in
fear of uncertainty following the unfolding developments in the
Elections Petitions Tribunal sitting in Owerri.

Following the declaration of Engr. Obinna Onwubuariri of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of Okigwe North Federal
Constituency election, Hon. Mathew Omegara of the All Progressives
Congress (APC) went to the Elections Petitions Tribunal to challenge
the outcome of the election.

Midweek Nigerian Horn investigations revealed that the inability of
Engr. Onwwubuariri’s legal team to stop Hon. Omegara’s argument
against the emergence of their client may have sent wrong signals to
Onwubuariri’s camp. It was learnt that Engr. Onwubuariri felt highly
disappointed as his motion to stop Hon. Omegara’s petition at the
Election Petitions Tribunal was struck out last week.
Engr. Onwubuariri, not comfortable with the ongoing harsh drama at the
tribunal, Midweek Nigerian Horn gathered approached some leaders in
Okigwe North Federal Constituency to appeal to Hon. Omegara to
withdraw his suit at the tribunal.
Grapevine source told Midweek Nigerian Horn that Engr. Onwubuariri has
expressed his interest to settle with Omegara out of court for peace
to reign. However, Hon. Omegara while addressing the leaders told them
to allow the tribunal to decide who wins the election during the
national Assembly election in Okigwe North held on the 28 of March
2015. Hon. Omegara pointed out that he has total confidence in the

Midweek Nigerian Horn gathered that the tribunal has slated
pre-hearing of the petition by Hon. Matthew Omegara against Engr.
Obinna Onwubuariri for 23rd July 2015.
