APC reacts to disqualification of Deputy Guber candidate ~ Truth Reporters

The Bayelsa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the Federal High Court judgement in Abuja disqualifying its Deputy Governorship candidate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo.

The party in a statement by the Publicity Secretary, Doifie Buokoribo described the ruling as a travesty of justice.

He urged party faithful to be calm as an appeal has been filed to stay execution on the judgement.

“The judgement occasioned a miscarriage of justice, is glaringly perverse and against the weight of evidence before the Court.

"We are totally surprised that the Court could despite the objections by our lawyers, go ahead to determine a weighty criminal allegation of falsification and fraud solely on the bases of affidavit evidence contrary to well established judicial precedents that such must be proved beyond reasonable doubt by calling oral evidence.

“We strongly believe that the judgement cannot withstand a superior judicial scrutiny, therefore, our lawyers have filed a notice of appeal and other court processes to arrest the execution of the judgement pending the outcome of the appeal.

“We call on all our members and supporters not to be distracted but continue to peacefully mobilize for the November 16, 2019 elections.”
