He noted also that it is worrisome that the panel 1 chairman especially, seem to be favoring candidates of the APC in his judgements, adding that “It’s like he has been paid to do this job.”

“I don’t know why he (panel chairman) should be delving into pre-election matters when it is obvious and clear that it is not what should be done.

“We will not take it; we reject the entire judgement because it does not reflect exactly what happened” Igara said while reacting to judgement on Osonwa.

On Munachim’s matter, he stated;

“The judge had struck out the documents which he relied on. If you strike out a document, the content is of no use anymore. I don’t know why he (panel chairman) should make a 360 degree when he had already struck the document out.

“As a party, we reject whatsoever judgement he has given, and we cannot take it”

According to Igara, the legal team of the party and the affected candidates would be consulted and their next line of action related to the public.
