Reactions have begun to trail the Enugu State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal judgement on Thursday, which dismissed the Petition of the Labour Party and its candidate, Mr Chijioke Edeoga, against the election of Mr Peter Mbah of the PDP.

According to reports, the Tribunal chairman, Justice Kudirat Akano during the Judgement, struck out all the petitions by LP and upheld the election of Mbah as the duly elected governor of Enugu State.

Edeoga’s application had sought to disqualify Mbah over alleged forgery of the NYSC certificate

Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone on the judgement, the state’s Commissioner for Information, Mr Aka Eze Aka said the judgement was expected.

“You can see the jubilation everywhere which is enough evidence that the people actually voted for Mbah.

“That goes to prove that the people of the state love him, hence, they voted massively for him,” he said.

Aka said the victory means that the government would now concentrate on the various projects lined up for the development of the state.

In the same vein, a legal practitioner and a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart, Mr Chidi Okeke, described the judgement as a welcome development.

“We did not expect anything less. It is a sweet victory,” he said.

However, the State Publicity Secretary of Labour Party, Mr Onuora Odo, described the Judgement as a “sham and a pervasion of justice”.

Odo, a legal practitioner, vowed that the party would surely move to a higher Court to seek justice.

“Our legal team is going to study the judgement carefully and advise on the next line of action.

“But rest assured that we will seek justice in a higher court, that Judgement cannot stand,” he said.
