Abia State Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate, Okey Ahiwe has expressed profound appreciation to his numerous supporters, his legal team, family, friends and associates, emphasising that “there is no cause for alarm regarding the Tribunal verdict as truth and justice will ultimately triumph.”

While expressing confidence in the judiciary, Ahiwe in a statement signed by his media adviser, Victor Nwokocha said that his legal team would thoroughly examine the judgment of the Tribunal and advise accordingly on the next line of action.

He also called on his teaming supporters to remain calm and law-abiding, assuring that, following due consultations with his legal team and leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he would keep them informed on the direction to take.
