Former Secretary to Abia State Government Pastor Ralph Egbu, has pleaded with the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA , in the 2019 polls, Dr. Alex Otti, to accept the judgment of the Court of Appeal which dismissed his petition against the election of Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu.

The former Information Commissioner who made the appeal in Umuahia said Otti should jettison the idea of any further legal tussle over the judgment “for the sake of Abia”.

Otti’s suit against Ikpeazu’s election in 2015 was decoded by the apex court which eventually resolved it in favour of the governor.

Egbu who expressed concern that protracted legal fireworks over political elections was not in the best interest of the state.
The former SSG appealed to Otti “to let go and and allow the will of the people prevail by dropping any intention to go to the Supreme Court “.
