Youths of Ohanaeze Urge Oppositions Not to Challenge Mbah’s Victory in Court


Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, the Igbo socio-cultural organisation, has pleaded with opposition parties in the just concluded Enugu State Governorship election to count court cases out.

The declaration of Peter Mbah as the winner has met so much resistance from different quarters.

Ohanaeze’s plea comes as major opposition parties reject the nomination of Peter Mbah of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor-elect of Enugu State.

Mazi Okwu Nnabuike who is the Ohanaeze Youths National President has reacted to the decision of the aggrieved parties to seek a reversal of Mbah’s victory, but has encouraged the offended parties to discard the idea of challenging the Peter Mbah’s victory in court.

He said, “we are gladdened that the people of Enugu State gave their mandate to Barr. Peter Mbah, just as we pleaded with them when we gave him our endorsement.

“Now that Mbah has emerged as winner of the election, the time of politicking is over; only one person will be declared winner, but in the real sense of it, everyone won. It is a victory for everyone, including those who contested against him.

We, therefore, appeal to all the aggrieved parties to sheath their swords and join the governor-elect to move Enugu State forward. The period of litigation always comes with so many distractions, and this may not augur well for the State.”

The Ohanaeze youths then called on Mbah to make real his olive branch to the opposition parties.

We urge the governor-elect to work his talk by embracing the other candidates genuinely and making them part of his government,” he added.

His statement came when the Labour party faithful and Apga faithful want their mandate restored.
