Mao Ohuabunwa

Still euphoric from his victory in the rerun election for Abia North, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa has called the bluff of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) and its defeated candidate, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, over their decision to challenge the outcome in court.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of PPA reportedly rejected the defeat of their senatorial candidate and vowed to challenge it in court just as they did after the 2015 National Assembly poll.

But Ohuabunwa, who spoke with journalists in Umuahia, said that by going to court, Kalu and his party would shoot themselves in the foot because of the revelations that would come out concerning their activities during the election of March 5, 2015.

“We are prepared and ready. We will expose them,” he said.

According to Ohuabunwa, the court would provide a good opportunity for his legal team to review and prove the extent to which PPA went in manipulating the poll in Bende local government, where Kalu scored over 14, 000 votes.
