Former Senate Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba SAN, has expressed confidence in the election petition tribunal in Cross River State to dispense of the petitions before them with fairness.
Senator Ndoma-Egba who spoke after he led a team of eight other lawyers to represent House of Assembly candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the Central Senatorial District of the state, admonished all the candidates of the Party who are pursuing election matters before the Tribunal to do so with diligence, determination and hope.
Senator Ndoma-Egba, himself a petitioner before the Tribunal on the basis of his alleged exclusion as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Central Senatorial District of Cross River State in the February 23, 2019 National Assembly elections, assured them of his support and encouragement as they seek justice.
He said the Party was massively supported during the elections and still enjoys a huge followership in the State.
He sued for the support and prayers of all APC faithful in the State for the candidates who are currently seeking redress in the Tribunal.
Candidates and supporters of the APC who thronged the Moore Road, Calabar premises of the Tribunal, during every sitting expressed their appreciation of the gesture by Senator Ndoma-Egba.
They said it was uncommon for a highly placed leader in society to offer his professional services and expertise, in such circumstances.
They enjoined other bigwigs of the Party to emulate Senator Ndoma-Egba in rendering moral and financial support to the Party and its candidates who are pursuing litigation before the Election Petition Tribunal.
