Imo Guber: I’ll Get Justice In Court, Athan Achonu Vows

Listen to article

The candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the just concluded governorship election in Imo State, Sen Athan Achonu, has declared that he is confident that he will get justice in court.

Achonu asserts that he has all faith in the legal system to uphold the law and make amends for the wrongs done to the Imo State populace on November 11, 2023, the day of the governor’s race.

Speaking to journalists at his residence in Abuja on Wednesday, Achonu expressed disappointment over the role of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which he claimed has so far denied the party and its lawyers access to records contained in the BVAS despite a subsisting court order.

“I believe there are still judges in our judiciary who are still upright. My prayer is to come across one of them in my case.

“There was no coalition at the ward level during the election, there was cluster voting in Osu; a government official took truck loads of thugs to vote.

“Bayelsa State with 8 local government areas took three days to collate the results of the elections held there, Imo State with 27 local governments collated its results within two hours. This is what Nigeria has become.

“INEC has refused to allow us to inspect the BVAS. President Bola Tinubu was in the streets protesting for justice during the June 12 (1993) crisis, he can’t allow this to happen.

“I understand that he and the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma are members of the same party but justice and fairness should not be about party.

“INEC is collapsing under the current chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, if he is no longer in charge he should come out and tell Nigerians that his officers are no longer obeying his instructions.

‘My appeal to President Bola Tinubu is that please, don’t let us descend into chaos, halt this decline.
