Court will decide governorship candidate – Ebonyi PDP Chair

Mr. Tochukwu Okorie, the PDP’s Ebonyi State chairman, has stated that he is willing to support whoever the court chooses to be the party’s candidate for governor.

On Africa International Television on Wednesday, he chastised people who, in his opinion, could not understand the true significance of what he stated.

This was said by the PDP leader during a press conference on Thursday.

In an interview with the AIT on Wednesday, Okorie stated that neither Ifeanyi Odii nor Obinna Ogba’s names as the party’s governorship candidate were now on the INEC’s records.

But reacting, Okorie said, “The truth is even though PDP was arm-twisted to forward the names of Ifeanyi Odii and his crew, those names have not reflected on INEC records. The portal that people talk about was opened for the uploading of candidates’ names and thereafter, the portal closed.

“It is for INEC to now publish what they have. And I can tell you authoritatively that Ifeanyi Odii’s name is not reflected anywhere in INEC records as the candidate for Ebonyi PDP.

“And the truth is INEC is being careful with this whole thing and this was why it extended or shifted the publication of candidates names. Remember they ought to have published those names before now. But they had to shift it because of plethora of cases, not just in Ebonyi State, but in other states, that are pending in the Appeal Court.

“So when someone came and said the Chairman said PDP has no candidate in Ebonyi State, it’s all just obfuscation. It’s nonsense. This was just the exact thing I said on AIT during an interview, on Wednesday.

“The point is that the Courts are vested with extraordinary powers, which cannot be flouted by anybody including INEC. For instance, if the Supreme Court orders INEC to recognise you as a candidate for PDP in Ebonyi State, INEC will not question it. PDP cannot question it and nobody can question it. It’s a court order and it must be enforced.

“It has happened. It has happened severally in this country. That’s why we have staggered elections in the country today. Hope Uzodimma became governor, by court order, even though he did not contest the election.JAMB Result

“So all they are saying is just to sensationalise what I said on AIT and it’s the handiwork of mischief makers, who are continually determined to feed the public with falsehood. And this sensationalism doesn’t avail anybody-Ifeanyi Odii or his foot soldiers. If the court rules in his favour, fine and good, he becomes the candidate; and if the court rules in favour of Obinna Ogba, fine and good, he becomes the candidate. As chairman, I will work with anybody the court says is the candidate. This is my position and this was what I said on AIT yesterday. So, people are merely sensationalising what I said and this should not be taken serious.”
