Ohanaeze: The Supreme Court’s decision: The protracted lawsuit at Enugu LP may have been prevented

Posted by

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide’s youth wing has issued a rallying cry to all political players in Enugu State, urging them to put aside their differences and unite for the benefit of the state’s growth and unity.

In light of Friday’s Supreme Court ruling that upheld Governor Peter Mbah’s victory, the leading Igbo socio-cultural organization made the following statement.

In a statement shared with journalists on Sunday, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, the National President of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, expressed the group’s grief over the prolonged and costly court battle surrounding the Enugu guber election.

According to Okwu, the youths of the Ohanaeze petitioned Barr Chijioke Edeoga, the candidate for governor from the Labour Party, to refrain from suing Mbah. “When Governor Mbah recorded victories in both the Tribunal and at the Appeal Court, we also urged him not to push the matter further,” the youths said.

Considering the magnitude of the litigation in Nigeria and the distractions it causes to the ruling government, we felt compelled to make this petition.

But now that the LP candidate has done everything by the book, we beg him to take the governor up on his offer of fellowship.

We think now is the time for him to listen to the governor’s clarion appeal for the state’s overall interest, as this is not the first time he and other opposition members have been invited to join him in bringing the state forward.

“The advancement and development of Enugu should be of paramount importance to any lover of the state; nobody can be governor at the same time.”

With “every obstacle and distractions have been removed,” the youth president of Ohanaeze encouraged the governor to devote his whole attention to providing good dividends to the people of Enugu State.

“Governor Peter Mbah has the ability to go above and beyond what the people of Enugu State expect from him, and the people of Enugu State are eager for good governance,” he added.
