The All Progressives Congress, APC in Delta State has showered praises on the Supreme Court for discharging and acquitting the immediate past senator representing Delta North, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi of all charges against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The APC described the apex court as not just the last bastion of hope for the common man but also for those who are truly innocent.
The Party in a statement signed by the State Chairman, Elder Omeni Sobotie while commending the Supreme Court for being an arbiter of truth and justice, expressed joy and gratitude to God for listening to the prayers of members in declaring the former senator innocent of the politically motivated and trumped up charges by the EFCC.
The State Chairman described Peter Nwaoboshi as a leader of men whose destiny has been tested by the crucibles of life and has been vindicated by the judgment of the Supreme Court today.
Quoting the words of Pastor John Maxwell, Elder Sobotie stated that “Natural leaders often need to be broken. Consider your natural ability to lead a gift from God, but your character is a gift to present back to God. Remember, every time you stand up under the weight of adversity, you are being prepared like, Jacob and Joseph were, to better serve God and lead people.”
The State Chairman took a swipe at those who had earlier mocked and made derogatory remarks at the plight of Nwaoboshi and reminded them that no man is God and no man, be he a Governor or not can ever be God.
He maintained that the leadership of the party had right from the very beginning had unshakeable faith and belief in the innocence of the former senator representing Delta North.
“We know that the EFCC was merely being used by the administration of the former governor of Delta State to politically prosecute Peter Nwaoboshi and today our belief in his innocence has been vindicated by the judgment of the supreme court”. The wickedness of the former Governor has come to an end.
The State Chairman also expressed profound appreciation to the leaders of the party who stood firmly with Senator Peter Nwaoboshi during his ordeal, particularly the former deputy president of the Senate, Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege, CFR, for his leadership role in ensuring that the party never abandoned the former senator throughout the trying times.
This is coming as the Supreme Court in Abuja discharged and acquitted Senator Peter Nwaoboshi of all the charges preferred against him by the EFCC.
