BREAKING: Gwacham expresses dismay over misinterpretation of tribunal judgement

All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Candidate of the Federal House member representing Oyi/Ayamelum Constituency, Hon. Lady Gwacham Maureen Chinwe has expressed dismay in the attitude of some people working effortless to mislead the public by misinterpretating election tribunal judgement between her and the Young Progressives Party Candidate in the last general election.

Speaking in her petition made available to our correspondent, Lady Gwacham said that after a vivid study of the judgement, the honorable court ruled that the election was fairly won by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) .

She said that the honorable court didn’t order the cancellation of any result from the previous elections held in each of the respective wards and polling units but ordered a rerun within a timeframe of 90days in 8 polling units in Umueje Community of Ayamelum Local Government Area.

Said She, “While we explore the option of appealing the case, i have no doubt that our supporters in the affected areas are ready and willing to buttress the victory the more.

“I will like to appeal to my overwhelming supporters to be calm as the judgement is still very much in our favour. However, I will like to set the record straight.”

Hon. Gwacham urged her supporters, family and well wishers to remain calm as no distraction will deter her from performing my legislative obligations to deliver on her campaign promises.

It will be recalled that the defendants in Young Progressive Party (YPP) Hon. Uchenna Okafor and People Democratic party (PDP) Candidate, Hon Vincent Ofumelu had earlier take up the case questioning the victory of the APGA candidate, Hon. Lady Gwacham Maureen Chinwe in the just concluded election on to the issue of No election in Umueje, Manipulation Mutilation, Violence etc.

All the accusations was strucked out and dismissed on lack of evidence by the honorable court except the issue of no election in Umueje where the judge asked for supplimentary election within 90days.

Note that All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, scored the total number of 15988 votes while Young Progressive Party YPP scored 14338 in the last concluded election.
