“The judge sadly descended into the arena, jettisoned my legitimate claims and reliefs and substituted his own. None of the Parties in the suit sought the reliefs granted by the honourable court.

“The judgment or order nullyfying the PDP Primaries held on the 3rd and 4th of September, 2019, as pronounced or rendered by the said Honourable court was done gratutiously and therefore, in my humble opinion, liable to be set aside.

“The reliefs sought by me, as a claimant, was unambiguously clear, straightforward, pointed and admits of no variance or panel beating as done by the judge.

“In conclusion, I humbly urge all my teaming supporters and party faithfuls to remain calm and focus on this noble cause as I am extremely hopeful to reclaim my mandate at the Court of Appeal.”
