Darlington Nwokocha, a former senator from the Abia Central district, has once again expressed outrage at the decision made by the Appeal Court that resulted in his dismissal.
On November 4, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) announced Col. Austin Akobundu (Rtd) as the legitimate winner of the Abia Central battle, and Nwokocha, who had been elected as a senator in February on the platform of the Labour Party (LP), was fired by the Appeal Court.
But Nwokocha is still upset by his dismissal, even two months after he was fired.
Speaking in a live Family Love 99.9 FM radio interview Although Nwokocha, Umuahia, was well-liked and widely accepted by the people of Abia Central, he expressed surprise that the Appeal Court had removed him from office.
He was taken aback by the Appeal Court’s refusal to reverse its decision in his case, even in light of the “evidence” he provided the judges.
He claimed that the legal arguments the Appeal Court made in order to remove him were “inconsistent with legal proceedings” and ought not to have been made.
“I continue to be shocked that someone is capable of such an assessment. Even now, I continue to be startled, Nwokocha bemoaned.
He went on to say that the Supreme Court had turned down his request for reinstatement, stating that the Appeal Court should handle his case instead.
After being welcomed back by his people, Nwokocha declared that he has given all to God.
The former senator also praised the political relationship that exists between Governor Alex Otti and Hon. Benjamin Kalu, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, stating that Abia State’s progress depends on the bigwigs of the LP and APC being brothers.
