Ebonyi PDP: Our guber candidate has not withdrawn suit challenging APC’s victory

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi says Ifeanyichukwuma Odii, the governorship candidate, has not withdrawn the suit challenging the outcome of the election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Francis Nwifuru, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the March 18 election in the state.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Abia Onyike, director of media and publicity of the PDP governorship campaign council in Ebonyi, asked the public to disregard any report claiming that Odii has withdrawn his petition against the APC.

“The attention of the Ebonyi PDP governorship candidate in the 2023 elections, Odii, has been drawn to a fake news story being circulated by some faceless writers who used his name to issue a fabricated press statement making the rounds in the social media,” the statement reads.


“The writers also claimed that Odii had congratulated his APC opponent in the governorship election. This is a blatant falsehood as nothing of such ever took place.

“We hereby seize this opportunity to assure the teeming members of our great party, PDP, and our massive supporters and great people of Ebonyi that there is no truth whatsoever in the trending fake News.

“We urge them to ignore the lies and falsehood and continue to support Odii and all our candidates who are involved in this legal challenge aimed at retrieving all our stolen mandates and restoring the fundamental rights of Ebonyi citizens to choose leaders of their choice.


“Odii is resolute in his commitment to ensuring that justice is done and cannot betray the great confidence reposed and vested in him by the good people of Ebonyi.

“We can assure you that with God on our side, sooner than later, we shall all have course to rejoice.”
