“The judgment of the Court of on the filed against the verdict of the governorship election petition tribunal by the APC and Mr Ekere, has again aligned with reality by confirming the sanctity of the ballot.
“In the well-considered judgment, the noble lords of the penultimate court, held that the appeal was lacking in merit, agreeing with the tribunal that the APC did not lead credible evidence to prove its case and that it dumped documents on the panel without linking them, as required by law.
“By the judgment, the judiciary has again shown that justice is directed by law and not federal might, partisan coloration or other extra legal dispositions. To this, we are deeply grateful to the court and wholeheartedly welcome the judgment,’’ Ememobong said.
