Ebonyi PDP Gov Candidate Denies Fraternizing With APC ?Today News

Dr Ifeanyi Odii, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Ebonyi State, has denied the allegation in some quarters that he was associating with the All Progressives Congress APC in the state in a view to secure an appointment after the 2023 general elections.

Rumours made the rounds on social media a few days ago that Ifeanyi Odii and the APC governorship candidate, Hon. Francis Nwifuru, were sighted in a meeting, at the Oriental Hotels, in Lagos, last week.

But debunking the alleged political romance, the main opposition party’s gubernatorial candidate Ifeanyi Odii, described it as laughable, saying it was a figment of falsehood that emanated from political merchants.

Ebonyi state governement lodge Abuja

Odii stated this in a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity, AnyiChuks (Odii) Grassroots Organisation, Abia Onyike, on Wednesday night.

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to another round of fake news concocted by our political opponents. The fake news which is a figment of the imagination of the social media fabricators claimed that the incoming Governor of Ebonyi State- the PDP Governorship candidate, Dr Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii is now working for APC with a view to be offered the post of Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, so as to bring his business associates to invest in Ebonyi State.

“These merchants of falsehood also claimed that there was a meeting between Dr Odii and the APC Guber candidate, Hon Francis Ogbonnaya Nwifuru at Oriental Hotel, Lagos, where the deal was sealed. This is very laughable.

“We wish to seize this opportunity to inform all Ebonyians in particular and Nigerians in general, especially our teeming supporters that there is no iota of truth whatsoever in the trending fake news. The PDP Governorship candidate, Dr Odii has never met with Nwifuru or anyone else to discuss such mundane issues. Rather, Dr Odii has been busy consulting Ebonyians and strategizing and getting prepared to kick off his campaign in the state and we are highly elated and impressed with the massive positive response Dr Odii has so far received from Ebonyians from all walks of life. This tremendous goodwill that he enjoys is a testimony that the people of the state are willing and ready to elect him as the Governor during the 2023 elections.

“It is this massive popularity which the PDP Governorship candidate enjoys in the state that may have triggered the latest groundless campaign of calumny, which is aimed at deceiving and hoodwinking the people of the state.”

It added, “Dr Odii is a man of principle, character and integrity. He cannot be cajoled into acts of mediocrity and surrogacy. He is a man who cannot start what he cannot finish.

“We, therefore, advise those behind the circulation of the fake news to refrain from such childish propaganda as such undertakings cannot alter the incontrovertible political situation in Ebonyi state today which points to the inevitability of a grand PDP victory in Ebonyi state in the forthcoming 2023 elections.

“The PDP Governorship candidate, Dr Odii is a young man with the drive, capacity and mass support to lead the PDP victory ship to safe anchor. There is no going back on this promise as God has already graciously willed it.”

News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
