Ebonyi State Commissioner for Project Monitoring, Felix Igboke, has decided to withdraw the lawsuit he filed at the Ebonyi Election Petition Tribunal challenging the election victory of Mr. Nkemkanma Kama as the representative of Ohaozara/Onicha/Ivo Federal Constituency. Igboke, who was the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate for the Federal House of Representatives Constituency election, lost to Kama, who was the Labour Party (LP) candidate.
In a statement, Commissioner Igboke announced his decision to withdraw the petition after receiving counsel from prominent leaders, family members, and constituents. He emphasized the importance of encouraging peace, development, and mutual coexistence among the people of the constituency.
“I, therefore, wish to inform us that I have withdrawn the said petition against Hon. Nkemkanma Kama. This was officially done today, July 20, 2023, and in the best interest of our people,” Igboke stated.
He acknowledged that it was a difficult decision to make but believed it was the right course of action. Igboke expressed his belief that the withdrawal of the petition would provide Kama with the necessary space to effectively represent the people and contribute to the development of the constituency, which has always been his desire and prayer.
The motion for withdrawal was formally presented to the Tribunal on Thursday, and the Tribunal subsequently struck out the matter. The decision to withdraw the lawsuit marks the end of the legal challenge against Kama’s election victory, and the focus now shifts towards serving the people and fostering development in the constituency.
