From Felix Ikem, Nsukka
Candidates of 11 political parties in the February 23 presidential and national assembly elections in Enugu State have congratulated Senator Chukwuka Utazi on his victory in Enugu North Senatorial District.
The senatorial candidates in statement issued in Nsukka and signed by all of them said that they would not challenge the election result in court or tribunal since it was credible, free and fair.
They, however, urged Utazi to carry everybody along, as well as to be magnanimous in victory since only one person can represent Enugu North at a time.
Among the 11 political parties that signed the release include United Progressive Party, Democrat Alternative (DA), Labour Party (LP), African Democrat Congress (ADC) and Social Democratic Party (SDP).
However, All Progressives Congress (APC) was not among the 11 parties that agreed not to go to court or tribunal.
In a related development, the leadership and members of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) Enugu State has congratulated Senator Utazi on his landslide victory at the polls.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of CUPP, Enugu State Chapter, Hon. Festus Ogbonna, the coalition pledged to continue to cooperate with the PDP government in Enugu State.
Reacting to the statement of 11 political parties and CUPP, Utazi thanked them and promised to carry everybody along.
