Amobi Ogah, the legislator representing Isuikwuato/Umunneochi in Abia State’s House of Representatives, has accused the tribunal judges sitting in Umuahi of compromising.

According to Gistlover, in a statement signed and made accessible to journalists, the Labour Party congressman, who created a sensation online for praising President Bola Tinubu’s intelligence, urged his constituents to remain calm and assured them that their vote would not be tampered with.

Ogah also criticized the ruling that overturned his victory in the 2023 National Assembly elections, stating that he will appeal the decision as soon as he has concluded discussions with his legal team.

He also expressed confidence that the desperate and malicious attempt to undermine the people’s will would be overturned at the appeals court.

He said, “My opponent, whom I know, did not win the election, and the judge cannot announce a result presented by the petitioner as concrete against the result presented by INEC.

“With the benefit of hindsight, this bizarre outcome is not totally strange as we had seen tendencies of clear compromise by the panel who discarded all known principles governing election adjudication and enunciated their own principles.

“Indeed, the manifestation of it was writ large at the adoption of final addresses wherein the current Attorney General of the Federation- Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, made comments suggesting underhand dealings with the Chairman of the Panel.

“I want to use this medium to call on my constituents who voted for me, knowing my capacity to deliver dividends of democracy to them, to be calm and abiding as I appeal the judgment delivered by the tribunal.

For the records, I scored a total of 11,769 votes against my opponent whom the commission said scored a total of 8,752 votes. It is very bizarre that despite calling a lone witness and dumping several strange result sheets before the Tribunal, the members of the panel recognized the same and disregarded original copies of the result sheets produced from proper custody.

“Let me be clear that I am rejecting the tribunal’s ruling and will appeal the obvious miscarriage of justice, fairness and objectivity.

“The will and wish of the people that came out en masse to vote me in is not in doubt, hence my prompting to challenge the judgement.

“One wonders why a minister already serving after a woeful defeat at the Feb, 25th National Assembly poll could still be making frantic efforts to unseat the popular wish of the people in the electoral victory of the Labour Party and its candidate.

 “I am however confident that her desperation and mischievous attempt to scuttle the will of the people would be upturned by the justices of the appellate court.”
