The All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to appeal Saturday’s ruling by the Federal High Court that dismissed the alleged certificate forgery suit filed against Edo State governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed dismissed the suit filed by the All Progressives Party (APC) and a chieftain of the party, Williams Edobor, declaring that the plaintiffs failed to prove their allegations of forgery against Governor Obaseki.
Chairman of Edo APC Caretaker Committee, Mr. David Imuse disclosed this in a statement issued by theState Publicity Secretary in the State, Chris Azebanwan.
Imuse, while reacting to the judgement, said the party’s legal team would immediately move to study the judgement and file an appeal against the judgement of the Federal High court.
He expressed hope that the judiciary will remain upright and always ensure that the will of the people and rule of law prevail.
“We thank God also granting all the lawyers and the judge very good health with which they all contributed to bring the whole litigation process to this interesting stage. It is not the end of the road”.
According to him, all APC members in Edo State are very hopeful like the good democrats and believers in the rule of law that they are that the Judiciary will continue to show that it is the last hope of the common man.
He also appealed to all APC members in the state to be calm and to go about their normal activities without animosity as the party appeals the verdict.
