Owerri — The Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the ruling of the election petition tribunal, which upheld the election of Rochas Okorocha as governor of the state.
In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr.Blyden Amajirionwu, the party said it rejects the ruling in its entirety because it runs against, "every grain of justice and fair hearing".
He appealed to members of the party and its supporters to remain calm and law abiding. According to him, the party will take every legitimate step available to reverse what he described as the miscarriage of justice. The election petition tribunal had on Saturday upheld the election of Rochas Okorocha as governor of the state.
