Unwilling to accept defeat, both the PDP and APC took the fight to the apex court, seeking to overturn Otti’s victory.

In another report, the South East chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lampooned the suspension of Igwe Damian Ezeani of Neni community in Anambra State by Governor Chukwuma Soludo describing it as an affront against Igbo traditional institution.

The party also denounced what it said to be the unlawful arrest and detention of Godwin Kanu Idei, the celebrated Eze Aro of Arochukwu Kingdom, on suspicion of impersonation by Abia State Governor Alex Otti.

The Chairman of APC in the zone, Dr. Ijeoma Arodiogbu, said the suspension of Ezeani for conferring chieftaincy title on the senator representing Anambra South, and a ranking member of the APC, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah was condemnable.

Arodiogbu described the action of Anambra state Government as an attempt to make Igbo crowns and stools an appendage of the APGA led government of Anambra state.

The party called on the pan Igbo group, Ohanaeze NdiIgbo as well as prominent Igbos all over the country as well as Nigerians; to rise up and condemn such an act as it undermines the tradition of NdiIgbo.
