APGA chieftain blames absence of rule of law on guber tussle in Abia

A member of Board of Trustees (BoT) of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief (Dr.) David Onuoha-Bourdex, has described the renewed gover­norship tussle in Abia State as a painful reminder of the rule of man that triumphed over the rule of law in the 2015 gover­norship election in the State.
There has been confusion in the state since last Thursday following the sack of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja over tax evasion, and the subsequent issuance of Cer­ ificate of Return to Dr. Samson Ogah, of the same party by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The APGA chieftain in a press statement yesterday noted that the development should be likened to the tale of ‘Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves’, stressing that it has once again shown that the PDP did not win the guber­natorial election in the State.
Onuoha-Bourdex, who was APGA senatorial candidate for Abia North in the last election, noted that until PDP comes out to apologize to Abia people, and confess to the monumental elec­toral fraud and injury it caused Abia people, the party would not know peace.
The statement read in part:
 “We in APGA told the world that we won the election, be­cause Abia people supported us and rejected PDP on account of its rule of man, impunity, brig­andage and electoral heist. The Court of Appeal, Owerri Divi­sion, nullified the governorship election and declared our gover­norship candidate as the actual winner
of the election.
“Now somebody within PDP has come out to prove that a wrong candidate was im­posed on the party. Do you see Nemesis and the spirit of our founding fathers, elderly people, women and youths that came out en masse to vote for APGA fighting back? That is the foun­dation of the confusion in Abia,” he stated.
