The special assistant on community relations to Hon Kenneth Ogba, Comrade Gift Ede has hailed the Court of Appeal verdict that gave victory to Hon Kenneth Ogba, describing his victory as victory for PDP and the entire people of Isoko South Constituency 1.
Comrade Ede while speaking to newsmen on the verdict of the appeal court, full of enthusiasm, he had noted that the appeal court judgment did not come to him as a surprise because the court of appeal sitting in Benin City only affirmed the verdict of the tribunal.
Comrade Ede used the medium to thank the judiciary, the people of Isoko south Constituency 1 for their love and support for Hon. Kenneth Ogba and the People’s Democratic Party during the period under review.
“Let me first congratulate my boss, the masses choice on his well-deserved victory at the appeal court sitting in Benin.”
According to him, ” the appeal court ruling is a confirmation of the ruling of the Delta State election petitions tribunal which had earlier confirmed Ogba as the winner of the March 9, 2019 House of Assembly election in Isoko south Constituency 1.”
“The judgment clearly showed that the Judiciary remains the hope of the common man to seek redress.”
“The victory confirmed the popular votes cast by the people of the Isoko south Constituency 1 for Hon. Kenneth Ogba and the PDP.”
He therefore urged the opponent of Hon. Kenneth Ogba, Hon. Benjamin Okiemute Essen, to join hands with him to build a better, stronger and prosperous Isoko south Constituency 1.
