Alex Eyengho

By Onome Oghenetega

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC)  for the Warri Federal Constituency seat in the House of Representatives during the February 23, 2019 National Assembly elections, Comrade Alex Eyengho, has said that the Delta State Election Petitions Tribunal-ousted Senator James Manager would “eat his boastful reaction to the spot on Tribunal verdict, after the imminent appeal court judgement in weeks to come.”

Comrade Eyengho made the remark in a statement he issued in Warri on Sunday, stressing that but for the manifest rigging machine of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the APC candidate and immediate past Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, defeated Senator Manager square and fair in the election.

The renowned journalist and awards winning international filmmaker, said,  “I have no iota of doubt in my mind that His Excellency, Dr. Uduaghan won that election, last most other APC candidates did.

“However, the usual rigging machine of the PDP which include but not limited to outright compromise of INEC officials, security agencies and intimidation of the electorate came to play. 

“Be that as it may, we in the APC family are glad that the Tribunal see what we saw and have removed Senator Manager, who has  incompetently been representing the Delta South Senatorial district in the Senate since 2003.”

“Let me quickly add however that the Tribunal should have gone a step further by outrightly declaring Dr. Uduaghan the winner and not just cancelling the election and ordering for a rerun within 90 days,” adding, “this is the judicial error by the Tribunal the court of appeal shall correct in favour of Dr. Uduaghan.”

The APC chieftain called on Senator Manager to honour himself by throwing in the towel to save him the embarrassment that will be meted out to him when the Appeal Court would declare Uduaghan as the winner.

  “Waste no time. Throw in the towel. Appeal court will declare His Excellency, Dr. Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan, CON the winner. 

“There shall be no rerun and even if the appeal court in the unlikely event orders one, you shall be floored again. The game is over. Throw in the towel now. Don’t waste precious time going on a fruitless appeal!”, the statement added.
