Stop maligning members of Elections Petitions Tribunal, Abia Govt. tells APGA

Abia State Government has called on the opposition party in the state, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA to desist from maligning and assassinating the integrity of members of the election petition tribunal sitting in the state.

Briefing journalists in his office, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, Mr. Godwin Adindu said that the tribunal has lived up to expectation in attending to the petitions before it dispassionately.

It will be recalled that APGA ran serialized newspaper advertorial in a major national daily in which it openly accused the Abia election petition tribunal of being compromised.

According to Adindu, such statements portrayed them (APGA) as unpatriotic; adding that since there is still a window in the Appeal court for further redress, there is no need for such unguarded statements which are capable of inciting the public and heating up the Abia polity.

He expressed surprise that the chairman of APGA who personally authored and signed one of the advertorials denied knowledge of the write-up thus portraying him as undependable.

Adindu re-enforced the Abia state government’s respect for the judiciary and rule of law and thanked the Abia election petition tribunal for a job well done.
