Mr Valentine Ozigbo, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the November 6 Anambra governorship poll, has described the Supreme Court judgment affirming his candidature, as victory for the people.
Ozigbo said this while answering questions from journalists Thursday in Abuja.

“It is important that people emerge through free and fair process, so that when anybody becomes a candidate, it will be the choice of the people, not that of some interlopers . So, I thank God for it,” he said.
Ozigbo extended his hands of fellowship to other aspirants who lost out in the race for the election.
”We need everybody on board. I do not practice a policy of segregation, but rather that of inclusion. Whatever I need to do to make them comfortable, I will do that. It is one family, one PDP, one umbrella, and it is big enough to accommodate all of us,” he said.
Ozigbo said that he was not much concerned about the defection of some PDP members to the All Progressives Congress (APC) because the party had more people at the grassroots.
He appealed to Anambra people not to be intimidated but to come out to vote on election day. (NAN)
