Member representing Ezza South/Ikwo federal constituency, Comrade Chinedu Ogah, of the All Progressive Congress (APC), has affirmed that the court of Appeal has restored his stolen mandate following its recent verdict which saw him as the winner of the 2019 national assembly seat of his constituency.
He disclosed that with his victory, the hope of the masses has been restored, and that the judiciary has proved to be the last hope of the common man.
Ogah who was reacting to his recent victory at Court of Appeal Enugu State, reaffirmed that the court has shown its interest in delivering justice for the masses no matter whose ox is gored.
My victory at the tribunal and Appeal court has shown truly that the judiciary is the last hope of the common man and it has also shown that the judiciary is the people that you cannot toy with, they are upright and doesnt collect bribe to pervert justice. They believe in what is right and saw that my constituents voted for me at the February 23 National Assembly elections.
The judiciary has restored the hope of the masses by restoring my stolen mandate. My coming into the National Assembly will bring tremendous changes in my constituency and the state in general in the sense that there will be no more time that the quota of Ebonyi in federal recruitment will be sold out as it used to be, he stated.
He also promised to ensure that Ebonyi indigenes are appointed into sensitive positions in the security agencies and other parastatals.
He dedicated his victory to effective representation of his constituency, stressing that its time to ensure that his people get their due quota from the federal government.
Ebonyi people have no Commissioner of Police, Director of DSS. It is the duty of a legislator to speak for it.
In the recent recruitment, Ebonyi quota was reduced from 150 to 100. I cant be in the National Assembly and such a thing will continue to happen, he said.
Ogah had on February 23, 2019 contested for the Federal House of Representatives seat to represent Ezza South/Ikwo federal constituency against Lazarus Ogbee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Independent National Electoral Commission declared Ogbee winner at the end of the poll.
Ogah challenged the result and went to the election tribunal to seek redress. At the end, Tribunal declared him the winner of the February election.
Not satisfied with the appeal court ruling, Ogbee took the matter further to Appeal Court Enugu and on November 1, 2019 in a judgment delivered by Justice Ignatuis Agube on behalf of Justice Veronica Dongban-Mensem, upheld the tribunal judgment declaring Ogah winner.
