Distinguished Senator Obinna Ogba the senator representing Ebonyi central and one of the governorship aspirants for the main opposition party in Ebonyi PDP Saturday addressed his supporters in Abakaliki and said he has forgiven those who in any way or manner willingly betrayed him during political battle.
Ogba who is currently the chairman Senate committee on Youth and sports assured his supporters that the days ahead will be interesting despite the loss incurred at the Supreme Court.
He used the medium to thank his wife, senator Pius Anyim and his supporters for standing by him during the trial time.
Senator Ogba promised to continue to work for the well-being of the greater Ebonyi people despite the political loss.
” On 21, October 2022 the supreme court gave a final judgment on the lingering matter emanating from the outcome of the 2022 Peoples Democratic Party primary election in Ebonyi State.
“The outcome of the judgment may not be what we wanted or what we worked hard for and I am sorry that we didn’t win this legal tussle for the Values we share and the vision we had for Ebonyi state and Ebonyians.
“But I feel fulfilled and grateful to God almighty for the rare opportunity offered to me.
“I remain eternally indebted for the support willingly offered to me by my supporters, I thank the Party Executives from National, Zonal, State, and Local Government Areas and Ward Executives who believed in our Vision and Brand.
” I thank various Christian heads for holding the fort and ensuring that while the struggle lasted, we were strong in Faith. I won’t take the platform given to me by Peoples Democratic Party thus far for granted.
“In all, I passionately hold the Nigerian Judiciary in high esteem. I agree with the words of My Lord Justice Oputa, “We are final, not because we are infallible, we are infallible because we are final”
“From the depths of my heart, the strides and efforts of my supporters will remain the best and most well-preserved in my political memory and history. Thank you for your Patience, Prayers, good intentions, and well-thought plans.
“I will always be grateful to God almighty that though the just concluded political differences laced with legal tussle took our time but not our lives. It dragged our patience and at times hung our emotions to the level of tension but it never led to flexing of muscles in a show of brutality not to talk of the death of a single soul.
Therefore, I return all glory to God.
“On my political stand, I was first a human being before venturing into politics and I am a believer in politics for the greater good of a greater number of our people and that is what the focus in the days ahead will be. Ebonyi people deserve peace, welfare, and happiness.
“In every contest, the human plan is always to win but nature always has a way of letting us win some and lose some most times for a better alternative.
“I have forgiven those who in any way or manner willingly betrayed our just cause.
“Lessons have been learned, more knowledge acquired and who knows what God has driven away from us intentionally to our disbelief, and the things he has in abundance for us ahead of us”.
