PEPT Judgement: PDP Expresses Confidence On Supreme Court Verdict

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT) expressed confidence on Thursday that the Supreme Court would overturn the judgment of the presidential election petition tribunal regarding the February 25 election.

The BoT, led by Chairman Adolphus Wabara, conveyed this belief in a statement issued after its 75th meeting in Abuja.

This followed the tribunal’s dismissal of the petitions filed by PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, challenging President Bola Tinubu’s victory in the election.

It read: “The BoT restates its rejection of the judgment of the PEPC in upholding the declaration of the APC as winner of the Feb. 25, Presidential election, despite the evidence pointing to the contrary.

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

“BoT has confidence 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.”

The BoT commended Atiku for following due process in his quest to retrieve the presidential mandate.

It also expressed concerns over the hardship, insecurity, and general sense of apprehension across the country occasioned by the implementation of policies of the APC administration.

“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 communiqué added.
