The highest socio-cultural organization in the South-East, Ohaneze Ndigbo has hailed the judgment of the Supreme Court of Nigeria in the case between Innoson Group of Companies and Guaranty Trust Bank, NAN reports. The group in a statement issued on Monday by Chief Emeka Attamah, Media Adviser to its President-General, Chief Nnia Nwodo said that by the judgment, the apex court refused to be used in an ethnic warfare to thwart Innoson of a judicial victory at the Court of Appeal.
“The judgment of the Supreme Court has shown that the judiciary remains the last bastion of hope for the common man. It is victory for democracy and an indication that there is still hope for the country.’’
“Ohanaeze commended the fighting spirit of Chief Innocent Chukwuma, the CEO of Innoson Group of Companies, for his doggedness and courage notwithstanding attempts to intimidate him with trumped-up criminal charges.
“No amount of intimidation or harassment will dampen the zeal of Ndigbo for a united Nigeria. It will only ginger them on in the fight for a restructured nation where every individual will be free to pursue his legitimate aspirations and businesses in a healthy, competitive atmosphere.’’
The group has called on the bank to comply with the ruling without delay.
