He appealed to his supporters across the state and especially within the local government area to remain calm, focus and unwavering in their support for him as there are still a lot of greater opportunities that would present itself in the future where he can serve them better.

According to him; “We have fought a good fight and exhausted all the legal means provided in the constitution to reclaim our mandate but God is the one that gives power and we cannot question him when things are not working the way we expected”.

“The Appeal court judges have made their decision and I have instructed my legal team to study the judgment so as to guide us subsequently in any electoral issues like this and I have decided to accept and take this outcome in good fate in the interest of peace and development of Udu local government area”.

“I therefore want to encourage my teeming supporters within and outside the Udu council area to remain calm, focus and unwavering in their support as greater opportunities to serve them better could present itself at any level of governance “.
