He said: “We’ve not lost as some people have interpreted it; it is rather a temporary setback that will be tested upstairs!

“The judgement is a miscarriage of Justice, which could have disruptive implications for our electoral process and democratic journey if allowed to stand!

“We expect that when all the facts and evidence are heard on appeal on the point of law, we will be vindicated.

While thanking his constituents for their support over the years, the Ozigizaga and Ubagidi of Enone promised to keep delivering the dividends of democracy to his Federal Constituency!
