The sacked PDP gubernatorial Candidate for 2023 governorship election in Ebonyi State Senator Obinna Ogba has enjoined his supporters not to be distracted over the recent supreme court judgment sacking him as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State.

Ogba who stated this while addressing his party supporters on Sunday in Abakaliki said he still has hope and confidence in the Nigeria’s Judiciary.

According to him, “I want to tell you that I belong to the common people of this country and the only hope of the common men and women is the judiciary. I still have confidence and hope on the Nigeria’s Judiciary and so nothing has happened wrongly.”

Senator Ogba who noted he entrusted the matter in the hands of God as what cannot be done by him as a spiritual father does not exist nor happen on earth, maintained that if it is not the wish of God nobody can take it away from him vowed to reclaim his mandate.

“If it is not the wish of God nobody will take our mandate away from us, what has happened is just simple something, we have two cases in the supreme court, one has been decided and it is not in our favour, we still have one to go and what is very important is that three senatorial candidates, six house of reps candidates and twenty four house of Assembly candidates are in my group and I am very sure we are going to win” he submitted

The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in the State Mr. Tochukwu Okorie and the embattled Deputy Speaker of Ebonyi State House of Assembly Hon. Obasi Odefa hinted that the party would take over mantle of leadership in the State come 2023 despite the crisis perpetrated by enemies of the party.

They duo expressed hope that Ogba must emerge as the party’s gubernatorial candidate in the State irrespective of the crisis and urged him not to be distracted while calling his supporters to remain steadfast as all hope has not lost.

The chairman of all the chairmen of PDP in the State Barr. Friday Agbom affirmed their total support to Senator Ogba in the legal battle saying they stood on the decision and resolution of the National Working Committee of the party cancelling the primary election conducted by Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii and his colleagues and thrown their weight on the primary election which produced Senator Ogba as the party gubernatorial candidate in the State come 2023.
