The Imo chapter of PDP has lauded the Court of Appeal judgment which reinstated sacked local government chairmen in the state on Thursday.
The Chairman of the party in the state, Mr Eze-Duru Iheoma SAN, made the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Owerri on Friday while reacting to the judgment.
NAN recalls that Gov. Rochas Okorocha in his maiden broadcast in June 2011 dissolved elected councils in the state under the administration of Chief Ikedi Ohakim.
However, the Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri and presided by Justice Uwani Abbaji ordered the reinstatement of the chairmen.
Duru-Iheoma said no matter how long justice “is delayed, truth will always find its way”.
He said that the court interpretation of the sacking of the chairmen “is a good example of democracy”.
Duru-Iheoma described the sacking of the chairmen as tyrannical, adding that such autocratic pronouncement could only survive in a military regime.
He attributed the legal victory to the efforts of some party members who insisted that justice must be done.
Duru-Iheoma urged the chairmen to be steadfast, adding that “PDP will recapture state power in 2015.”
