Ousted National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh, has declared that the courts cannot stop the inauguration of the governor-elect of Anambra State, Willie Obiano.
Umeh spoke yesterday while fielding questions from State House correspondents. He was part of a delegation of Anambra indigenes that paid President Goodluck Jonathan a thank you visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
APGA’s factional candidate in the November 16, 2013 gubernatorial election in Anambra State, Chike Obidigbo, had asked a Federal High Court to stop Obiano from being sworn in on March 17.
But Umeh described the lawsuit as unjustifiable, saying the claimant had no grounds for going to court.
According to him, “People are always going to court even when it’s unnecessary. If it has been reported on the pages of newspapers that somebody has gone to court to stop the swearing-in of somebody who had a landslide victory in the governorship election of Anambra State, the only thing one can say is that the person who has gone to court should know that Anambra State belongs to the people, not to anybody’s personal ambition”.
