In a landmark ruling that has sent jubilation across the streets of Ajegunle, and affirmed the Judiciary as the last hope for the common man, an Abuja high court has declared Hon. Rita Orji (PDP)the winner of the February 2019 House of Representatives election for Ajeromi Ifelodun Federal Constituency.
The court had earlier struck out the case for a rerun brought before it by the APC and their Candidate.
The court has therefore instructed INEC to formally announce the result and present the certificate of Return to the Hon. Rita Orji.
The court’s decision has been hailed as a true reflection of the voice of the people. In an election that comprised the Presidential, the Senatorial and the Federal House of Representatives, it baffled the people why INEC declared the results for the Presidential and the senatorial but choose to withhold that of the House of Representatives. The ruling is seen as a divine confirmation of victory for a campaign with the slogan “Divine Mandate.”
Youth have been carrying Hon. Rita Orji’s posters singing “she’s a goaaal!!! She’s a goal.!!!
Some of the people jubilating and dancing on the streets of Ajegunle said that “now we have faith in Nigeria.”
A market woman at the popular Boundary market was shouting “we thank Godioo, poor man self don get mouth for Naija. Na Rita we sabioo.”
