Sebastine Okoh, has accepted the decision of the Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos State regarding today’s judgement over the appeal he filed against the ruling of Delta State Election Tribunal in Asaba, upholding the declaration of Mrs Marylin Okowa-Daramola of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), as the winner of March 18, 2023, Delta State House of Assembly Election, in Ika North-East Constituency, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Hon. Sebastine Okoh made this known to members of the press today, the 25th of November, 2023, shortly after the judges of the appellate court gave their Judgement.

He noted that everything has their own seasons in this life;

A time to fight and a time to move on, and hearkening to the voice of wisdom, the latter holds all the aces as far as tomorrow is concerned.

The Umunede-born political superstar, also told Newsmen that although he disagrees with the content of the declaration of the Judges of the appellate court, he has no choice than to respect their decisions as constitutionally expected of him and use the opportunity to commend his legal team for their display of legal brilliance, gallantry and doggedness against a strongly connected Oligarchy in Delta State.
