Sandy Onor Thanks Cross Riverians, Describes Tribunal Judgement As Unfortunate And Surprising Verdict


The Cross River State Gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, in the March 2023 general elections, Sen Sandy Onor, has described the judgement of the Governorship Election Tribunal as unfortunate and surprising.

Sen Onor made the disclosure in a press statement he personally signed and obtained by TheLumineNews while reacting to the judgement of 26th September, 2023.

The statement reads in full, “As you are now aware, the Cross River State Governorship Elections Petition Tribunal, sitting in Calabar the Cross River State capital delivered an unfortunate and surprising verdict on the Cross River State Governorship election which took place on 26th September, 2023.

“Whilst I am extremely dissatisfied with the Tribunal’s judgement on the matter, I have decided to take it with equanimity, for now. However, I am yet to receive a formal copy of the judgement, and the attendant briefing from my legal team.

“I propose to meet with the members of my campaign organisation in the coming days to ruminate on the instant situation, and to decide on the appropriate way forward.

“Permit me to use this medium to convey my heartfelt appreciation to the campaign organisation for their wonderful efforts which gave us a successful election, notwithstanding the situation as it has now been made to appear.

“I also thank the people of Cross River State for their unalloyed, unstinting and unwavering support, and to the various prayer warriors, the numerous widows and other women, not forgetting the children, all of who took out time to fast and to pray for us, all through the period of the elections, and during the subsequent litigation at the tribunal.

“Finally, I enjoin us all to remain calm in the face of the provocation and injustice to which we have been repeatedly subjected, and hereby assure you that your efforts and prayers shall not be in vain.

“I pray that God will bless and reward you all for your efforts”.
