Nigerian President....
Ararume Is A Victim Of Injustice -The Whole World's Watching

Chibuzo Ukaibe, Abuja

March 23rd 2009
A former Senator, Chief Boniface Agunanne, has described Senator lfeanyi Araraume as a victim of injustice.

Senator Agunanne, who stated this in a statement, disclosed that Araraume was denied the lmo Governorship because some members of a clique in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) felt he was not the man they wanted.

He disclosed that it was this clique that wrote the results of the elections.

He blamed the clique for what he described as the "Protracted tussle" over who won the 2007 lmo Governorship election, insisting that if the results of the election had been released without manipulations from the PDP clique, Araraume would have been Governor by now.

He blamed former President Olusegun Obasanjo for disrupting the electoral process in lmo and plunging the State into "endless crisis" through the imposition of those the people never voted for.

Agunanne said that lmo would enjoy political harmony after the resolution of the injustice suffered by Araraume.

The former Senator further said that if Araraume' s detractors had obeyed the judgment of the Supreme Court which declared (him) Araraume the authentic candidate of the PDP for the 2007 lmo governorship election, "there would not have been endless litigations on lmo governorship".

He expressed surprise at the manner in which persons without results were imposed on the lmo people as leaders.

He accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of being insensitive and callous for accepting the "magic figures" that were announced which he said had placed lmo on the precipice.

He urged the Court of Appeal to take a decisive action on lmo and save the State from political tension.

He further described the Imo gubernatorial election as "a very controversial one" which outcome, he said was at variance with the wish of Imo people.

Senator Agunanne advised Araraume not to loose faith in the country because of all that he had suffered, adding that "the Appeal Court judges are Nigerians and were aware of what happened in Imo".
