The Deputy Chief Whip of the 10th Nigerian Senate and Senator representing Ebonyi North Senatorial district, distinguished Senator Peter Onyekachi Nwebonyi has congratulated the Governor of Ebonyi State Chief Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru over his Supreme Court victory, describing it as the affirmation of the general will of Ebonyians.
In a statement signed and made available to newsmen by his Legislative Media Aide Romanus Uzor Ozioko, the Senator thanked Ebonyians for their massive love for Governor Nwifuru as manifested in their overwhelming votes, consistent prayers and unshaken solidarity during and after the elections.
Senator Nwebonyi maintained that the Supreme Court’s verdict is an affirmation of the earlier judgement of both the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and the Appeal Courts respectively, which is undoubtedly the reflection of the mandate freely given to Right Honourable Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru at the March 18, 2023 governorship election by the greater number of Ebonyians.
“Now that the issues of the election have been put to rest, I must reiterate my earlier call for the litigants to close ranks and work together with our Governor for the good of all Ebonyians.
“They should all bring their blueprints to the table in order to harness its potentials in delivering the much-needed dividends of democracy to our people.
“I sincerely applaud my super Governor for not only extending an olive branch to them but for his resolute calm, prudential courage and unwavering commitment to effective service delivery despite the distractions of the litigation processes. It is therefore an ideal time for more dedication and commitment to his well thought-out People’s Charter of Needs Agenda.”
The Federal lawmaker of the 10th Senate noted that the Supreme Court’s victory of Governor Nwifuru is a victory for all Ebonyians owing to their resilience, selfless sacrifices and unflinching solidarity stressing that the victory was the affirmation of the people’s will. He insisted that it’s now time for Ebonyians to redouble their supports to the Renewed Hope Agenda and People’s Charter of needs initiatives of the Federal and State Governments.
