‘I Defeated PDP Candidate By Landslide’, Kalu Disagrees With Tribunal Verdict

Orji Uzor Kalu, former governor of Abia State has reacted to the judgment of the election tribunal, which sacked him as senator representing Abia North District.
The National and State Assembly Petition Tribunal sitting in Umuahia, the state capital, headed by Justice Cornelius Akintayo, nullified Kalu’s election in a ruling on Monday.
Kalu, who contested the election under the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), in a statement released by his media office, claimed he defeated the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Ohaubunwa,  by a land slide in the National and State Assembly elections, which held on February 23, 2019, and vowed to go to court to re-claim his mandate.

He admonished his supporters and members  of the APC to remain strong, steadfast and law-abiding.

He also expressed the confidence that the party would always defeat the PDP in any election conducted in his senatorial district.

“Following the decision of the  Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Umuahia, I will appeal the decision of the tribunal at the Court of Appeal. The PDP candidate, Ohaubunwa, is not popular among the people, and as such, my victory in the National Assembly poll was a landslide.

“Any day, any time, the APC will defeat the PDP in Abia North Senatorial District. At the appropriate time, my mandate will be restored,” he said.

He also thank Abians for their show of love and support before, during and after the 2019 general election.
