 In a recent press statement, the Abia People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has called for calm following the decision of the three-man panel of Appeal Court judges to uphold the ruling of the Abia Election Petition Tribunal. The tribunal had affirmed Alex Otti as the winner of the March 18, 2023 Abia governorship election, as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The Abia PDP has assured its members, supporters, and the people of Abia State to remain calm as the party’s leadership is currently meeting with the governorship candidate, his running mate, and the legal team to review the judgement and determine the next course of action.

In reaffirming its confidence in the judiciary as the last hope of the common man and a strong pillar of democracy, the Abia PDP urges its members, supporters, and the people of Abia State to remain steadfast, peaceful, law-abiding, and to place their hope and trust in God and the judiciary as they explore available options.

The party also wants the people of Abia to know that they will not be abandoned despite their alleged suffering under the policies of Alex Otti.

The Abia PDP’s press statement concludes with its slogan, “Power to the People!” and is signed by Hon. Elder Abraham Amah, the Abia PDP Vice Chairman and Acting State Publicity Secretary.
