ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Abia State Governor -elect, Alex Otti has told Abians not to panic over his purported sack by a Federal High Court in Kano, saying there is no cause for alarm.
He described the court ruling as kangaroo judgement, insisting that arrangements for his swearing-in on 29 May were on full gear as planned.
Otti who spoke with Vanguard in Abia, said that the antics of the enemies of democracy cannot truncate the will of Abians.
This is as the Labour Party has dismissed the said judgment as a waste of time.
Similarly, the Labour Party Chairman in Abia State, Hon. Ceekay Igara, noted that the court’s “pronouncement is laughable”.
According to him, the decision of the court would have no significance in the coming inauguration of the Governor-elect.
Igara added that only the election tribunal has the power to sack a democratically elected person.
“That court pronouncement is laughable. Everybody should go about their normal activities. It is only the tribunal that can remove Alex Otti.
“It is not just a court that will remove someone who was duly elected. Infact I am going to gear up activities for the inauguration,” he said.
