Former Deputy Senate President and gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Ovie Omo-Agege, has dismissed the judgment of the Court of Appeal which upheld the victory of the Governor of Delta State, Sheriff Oborevwori.
The court of appeal ruled that Omo-Agege's appeal was unfounded.
While reacting to the Court of Appeal judgment, Omo-Agege described it as a deferred redemption for Deltans, hinting that he would head to the Supreme Court to seek justice.
In a statement issued by his media advisor, Sunny Areh, and made available to journalists in Warri, Delta State shortly after the appeal court decision, Omo-Agege appealed to his supporters to remain calm and law-abiding to stay.
The statement said Omo-Agege firmly believes that justice is yet to be done to the people of Delta State who voted for him and the APC, adding that the judiciary at the Supreme Court will serve justice in the business.
The statement reads in part: “We will proceed to the Supreme Court. The issues at stake touch the future and well-being of the people who voted for a New Delta. We have a duty to respect them by defending their faith in us with all our efforts and responsibility. We have no doubts about what is right.
“I am confident that the respected justices of the Supreme Court will investigate the areas overlooked by the Court of Appeal and provide justice for our people.”
