Hon. Unah Congratulate Gov. Otu on his appeal court victory

Hon. Grace Unah, Former Leader Female Councilors Forum Cross River State, has congratulated Sen. Bassey Edet Otu, Governor of Cross River State, on his victory at the court of appeal in Lagos yesterday.

On Wednesday the 22 day of November 2023, the court of appeal sitting in Lagos state, dismissed an appeal filed by Sandy Onor Ojong, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging Prince Bassey Edet Otu’s victory in the March 2023 governorship election.

Grace, in a congratulatory message on Thursday, said the judgement delivered by the court of appeal affirms that the rule of law is meant to protect the will of the people in a free and fair electioneering process.

She also added that the governor should continue to work with other candidates for the development of state.

“The Appeal Court decision stood for the vital proposition that the rule of law serves to protect the sovereign will of the people when expressed in free and honest elections,” Grace said.

“Congratulations once more to Cross River State Governor, Sen Prince Bassey Edet Otu, and his Deputy, Rt Hon Peter Odey, for the Court of Appeal judgment affirming their overwhelming victory in the governorship election in the state.

“By this judgement, the appellate court clearly shows that Governor Bassey Otu and Deputy Governor Peter Odey were the candidates who the people of Cross River chose to pilot their affairs of the state.

“The confidence the people repose in the Bassey Otu administration has been well earned and should be wholly respected.

“Once again, I rejoice with Governor Bassey Otu, Deputy Governor Peter Odey, our teeming APC members in cross river state and, indeed, the good people of the state over this court victory.”
