Abi lawmaker celebrates Gaul, says tribunal victory is an act of God

The member representing Abi state constituency in the Cross River state House of Assembly, Hon. (Dr.) Davies Etta has described the tribunal victory of Rt. Hon. John Gaul Lebo, former speaker of the assembly as an act of God.

Speaking in a felicitation message to John Gaul, Dr. Davies said "Your victory at the tribunal which is well deserving is an answer to prayers of the good people of Abi/Yakurr federal constituency who deserve better representation at the national assembly, therefore, I can but only describe it as an act of God, because this can only be God. It has indeed ended in Praise, now I know faith can truly be a strategy". 

Davies further salutes the courage of the erstwhile speaker who he said against all odds even in the face of despondency still exhumed strong faith in the judiciary, believing the purported victory of the opposition at the polls will be upturned  by the court.

He therefore, appealed to the PDP family in Abi/Yakurr and the state at large to be more united and rally round Rt. Hon. Lebo to secure the victory, stating that the victory is indeed a victory for the party and the people.

While congratulating the former speaker, the lawmaker used the opportunity to call on all Abi sons and daughters to shun any form of violence that will further escalate the current insecurity challenges the Local government is battling with, urging constituents to imbibe peace as his priority is to return peace and development to the constituency.
