Tribunal verdict: PDP sets for Supreme Court

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed shock over the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal verdict on its case against the election of President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 23rd Presidential election.

The election petition tribunal verdict on Wednesday dismissed the petition by PDP against the election of Buhari, declaring him as the actual winner of the presidential election.

In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Wednesday, the party said it would appeal the election tribunal verdict at the Supreme Court.

Mr Kola Ologbondiyan said that the PDP completely rejected the verdict.

He said that the silence across the nation since the judgment was delivered was an indication that the verdict had not fulfilled the desires and expectations of Nigerians.

He, however, encouraged Nigerians to remain calm and not lose hope or surrender to despondency or self-help. Ologbondiyan said that the lawyers of the party were confident of obtaining justice at the Supreme Court.

“This is more so as the tribunal itself admitted that there are several errors in the judgment,” he said.

The PDP National Chairman, Mr Uche Secondus, said:

“We have heard the judgment, our legal team will study it and we take it from there.”

On his part, the Vice-Presidential Candidate of PDP in the election, Mr Peter Obi, said the judgement was not about Buhari or Atiku but about the practice of democracy in Nigeria and the rule of law. “It is about the future of our country. It’s about the suffering masses whose future is being toyed with,” he said.
