Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi has described his journey to the Nigerian senate as the will of God.

This is as the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja, Friday, upheld his candidacy as the authentic flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress,(APC) Ebonyi South Senatorial district.

The Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Strategy, Chooks Oko in a statement appreciated the people of the zone for their solidarity and prayers.

The Voice gathered that the court had set aside the judgement of Federal High Court and all the orders it made, and maintained that the lower court was wrong when it upheld Ann Agom-Eze’s counter-Affidavit and failed to uphold the primary election of 9th June, 2022 which produced Umahi as the senatorial candidate for Ebonyi South district.

It maintained that Umahi’s nomination was never challenged by anybody within 14 days as prescribed by section 285(9) of the 1999 Constitution, and at such confirmed Governor David Nweze Umahi as duly elected in the Ebonyi South Senatorial primary election of the All Progressives Congress.

He commends the judiciary for their forthrightness and dependability as an impartial arbiter in human conflicts.

The statement reads in part: “The Governor consequently, heartily appreciates the citizens of the Senatorial district in particular, and the entire State for their prayers, steadfastness and goodwill which culminated in the victorious judgement.

“With the judgement, the Court has once again, asserted its inviolate position as the hope of all seekers after justice.

“The Governor wishes to sieze this opportunity to strengthen his vow of offering the best Senatorial representation to the good people of the senatorial district even as he pledges to use the position to further advance the cause of Ndi Igbo and disadvantaged Nigerians.

He however, beckoned on all the stakeholders of the district to join hands with him and the All Progressives Congress to deliver other quality candidates in the 2023 general elections
