Tribunal judgement: We’ll get justice in Supreme Court – PDP

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT) has expressed optimism about getting justice in the Supreme Court, saying the country’s apex court would right the wrong in the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) upholding the victory of President Bola Tinubu.

The BoT Chairman, Senator Adolphus Wabara, said this when he read the communique issued at the end of the board’s 75th meeting in Abuja on Thursday.

“The BoT restates its rejection of the judgment of the PEPC in upholding the declaration of the APC as winner of the February 25 Presidential Election in spite of the evidence clearly pointing to the contrary.

“The BoT is resolved to take urgent steps to resist the current manifest desperation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to turn Nigeria into a one-party State.

“The BoT is confident in the capacity and courage of the Supreme Court to ultimately and decisively right the wrongs and correct the manifest errors contained in the judgment of the PEPC,” Wabara said.

He commended the PDP’s presidential candidate, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, for following due process in his quest to retrieve the presidential mandate.

Wabara also expressed worry over the current situation in the country, which according to him, was occasioned by the implementation of policies of the APC administration, saying that Nigerians looked unto the PDP for solution and direction.

“The BoT is seriously worried over the continued fall in the value of the naira arising from the ill-implemented policies of the APC with attendant devastating negative effect on the economy, resulting in agonizing high costs and unbearable pressure on families.

“The BoT assures Nigerians that in spite of the challenges, the PDP remains united, stronger and more determined to continue to lead the charge to rescue our democracy and return our nation to the path of credible elections, rule of law, national cohesion and economic prosperity,” he said.
