The Delta State Labour Party, LP, has beat its chest and congratulated itself over its performance in the prosecution of its petition, challenging the declaration of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa (PDP) as the winner of the April 11, 2015 Delta State Governorship elections, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, at the Governorship Elections Petitions Tribunal, sitting in Asaba, Delta State.
This vote of excellence was contained in a statement issued by Senior Media aide to Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru, Delta State gubernatorial candidate of Labour Party, Mr. Henry Efe Duku, who noted that he like other witnesses told the truth at the tribunal and that Posterity will testify that for a better society for all, they conscientiously discharged the easy burden of truth laid on them by apostles of falsehood.
The statement titled: WE CONCLUDED OUR CASE WELL, reads thus: ”Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru and Labour Party (LP) today closed their case at the Governorship Election Tribunal sitting in Asaba. With God’s manifest help, we ended very well.
“First, an attempt by the Respondents (Senator Okowa, PDP & INEC) to prevent the Petitioners from linking exhibits tendered to their case was fully resisted by our counsel and overruled by the Tribunal. Secondly, Mr. Turner Ogboru, as one of the leading witnesses, gave unshakeable evidence in support of the petition that the Distinguished Senator Okowa never won a lawful governorship Election. Lastly, yours sincerely (Efe Duku) testified.
“I, like other witnesses, simply spoke the hard truth as I know it to be. Truth often hurts and I am convinced it hurt some liars so sorely today. Posterity will testify that for a better society for all, we conscientiously discharged the easy burden of truth laid on us by apostles of falsehood. No apology for that.
“Now, we wait for Senator Okowa to open his defence on Saturday. Because it is impossible to permanently bury the truth, we believe his defence must crumble. That is the main lesson of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ – truth always comes back alive. And, so shall it be with our dear State. Truth will be revealed; justice will prevail; the people will rejoice; and the glory will go to God Almighty”, the statement concluded
