Ekweremadu hails Supreme Court on Abia, Akwa Ibom

The Deputy Senate Presi­dent Ike Ekweremadu has congratulated the Gover­nor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ik­peazu and his Akwa Ibom State counterpart, Mr. Emmanuel Udom on their victories at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Senator Ekweremadu who hailed the Supreme Court as “the bastion of the nation’s democra­cy”, said the apex Court’s verdicts on the election petitions “were not only resounding victories for the masses of Abia and Akwa Ibom States, but also for the na­tion’s democracy in general”.
Ekweremadu who spoke through his Special Adviser (Media) Uche Anichukwu, added: “By these verdicts, the Supreme Court has, once more, reaffirmed the supremacy of the ballot box over might and propa­ganda. I commend the Court for upholding the PDP as the over­whelming choice of the people of Abia and Akwa Ibom States and urge my two brothers, Okezie Ik­peazu and Emmanuel Udom, to continue with their uncommon transformation of their respec­tive states even as they extend the olive branch to all political inter­ests in the State”.
He urged the people of both to continue to support their per­forming governors and the PDP.
