APC on the Court of Appeal decision
The Edo State All Progressive Congress (APC) has said it will appeal Saturday’s decision by the Abuja Federal High Court in the case against Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Igbere TV previously reported that a court today dismissed a falsification case filed against Edo Governor APC and party leader Williams Edobor.
Judge Ahmed Mohammed dismissed the case based on the finding that the plaintiffs (APC, Edobor) had failed to prove their forgery charges against Obaseki “beyond reasonable doubt”.
In a statement sent Saturday to Igbere TV and endorsed by APC’s temporary ad in Edo, Chris Azebamwan, the party said it was appealing the ruling.
He quoted the chairman of the Edo Party Guardians Committee, Colonel David Imuse RTD, as saying that the APC legal team will immediately investigate the ruling and file an appeal.
Imus expressed the hope that the judiciary will remain steadfast and will always ensure that the will of the people and the rule of law prevail.
“We also thank God for giving all lawyers and judges excellent health to help them bring the entire trial into this interesting phase. This is not the end of the road, ”says the president of the PCA.
He said that all PCA members in Edo State, as good Democrats and rule of law advocates, are very confident that the judiciary will continue to demonstrate that this is the common man’s last hope.
Meanwhile, Colonel Imuse urged all APC members in the state to remain calm and go about their business as usual without animosity as the party appeals for a verdict.
