The Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has congratulated his PDP colleague governors of Rivers  and Ebonyi States, Barister Nyesom Wike and Dr. Dave  Umahi, respectively, on the reaffirmation of their electoral victories today by the apex court, the Supreme Court of Nigeria. 

Governor Ikpeazu said the verdict of the apex court on the cases of these two governors is a victory for democracy and a vindication of the people’s long-drawn struggle for justice, adding that it is also a tiding of good hope for the two states. 

He commended the two governors for being the custodian of a divine mandate which represents the will and aspiration of their people and thanked the apex court for ensuring that the mandate remains sacrosanct. 

The Governor also noted that the verdict of  the Supreme Court on these two states has gone a long way in restoring  the hope and confidence of the Nigerian people on the sanctity of the judiciary and  commended the apex court for standing firm in the  defence of the law and constitution of the land.  

He further observed that the Supreme Court has acted well in setting the standard and precedence for  proper interpretation of our electoral procedures, noting that with the standard set by the apex court,    the contradictory verdicts experienced in the  appellate courts  will not repeat in the years ahead. 

He commended the people of Rivers and Ebonyi States for putting up a good fight in supporting their governors and for their perseverance and doggedness throughout the legal battles that have now ended in victory and celebration. 

He  also expressed optimism that the two states will witness a watershed of drastic progress in the hands of the two dynamic leaders in the days ahead and advised his collegue governors to see their victory as the victory of the masses.
