The governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, of Delta State, Rt Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori has approached the appeal court following the ruling of his disqualification by the Abuja Federal High Court, presided over by Justice Taiwo on Thursday.
Oborevwori has equally called for calm, adding that the judgement disqualifying him will be set aside in the appeal.
The PDP candidate, through His Chief Press Secretary, Mr Dennis Otu, urged all his supporters and indeed all Deltans to remain calm and be steadfast in the face of the Abuja court ruling, adding that the ruling would be set aside in the appeal.
The statement reads in part: “I wish to appeal to all my supporters, political associates and well-wishers to remain calm and law-abiding over the Judgement of the Federal High Court. There is no need to panic, all is well. We will certainly appeal the Judgement and so let us maintain the peace as all hope is not lost. All is well and it will end in praise to the Glory of God Almighty.
“The courts have always been part of our democratic experience, and our confidence in the judiciary which is the last hope of the common man is unwavering. So, as we embark on the appeal process, our supporters and indeed Deltans should kindly note and rest assured that Rt. Hon. Sheriff Francis Orhowedor Oborevwori remains the Gubernatorial Flag Bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State for the 2023 general Elections. The Sherrification Movement is well and alive and, by God’s grace, we shall overcome.
“Once again, I want to appreciate God Almighty for giving us victory at all times, and we will certainly not stop praying for more victories because Delta State is in God’s hands and be reassured that He will take us to the Promised Land at the end of the day. We also wish to thank our teeming supporters for their steadfastness” Oborevwori noted.
