The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has appealed to Nigerians to call out Justice O.A Nwabunike of the Anambra state High Court for refusing to release the case file as well as copies of his “perverted” judgment on the Sen. Ugochukwu Uba Vs PDP & Ors.
The PDP said that upon resumption of court activities today, Justice Nwabunike, remained adamant in withholding the documents, all in his desperate bid to frustrate and distract the PDP and its candidate, in the Anambra state governorship election, Valentine Ozigbo, an action the party described as vexatious.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said it asserts that the deviltries of the judge, in seizing the documents is aimed at frustrating the notices of appeal filed by the PDP and her candidate against his aberrant judgment, knowing that such black-market judgement cannot stand in appeal.
“Our party cautions Justice Nwabunike not to continue to test the will of the generality of the people of Anambra, whose mandate, being expressed in our candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, is being undermined, as such may trigger serious crisis in the state.
“It is indeed indefensible, that a court judge is bent at causing crisis in Anambra state and we call on Nigerians and the people of Anambra to hold Justice Nwabunike directly responsible should there be any breakdown of law and order in the state,” the statement said.
The PDP vowed that it will not be deterred or distracted by Justice Nwabunike and an individual, who did not even participate in its primary, as they cannot stop the people of Anambra state and its candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, from emerging victorious in the election.
Ozigbo has been battling with multiple court cases challenging his election as the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State. His name was missing as the electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission released list of candidates for the election last week, citing obedience to court order as the reason for his exclusion.
