Supreme Court - PDP Demands A Review Of Buhari's Presidential Victory, As APC Heads To Court

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has equally demanded reviews of the Supreme Court judgment on the 2019 presidential polls, Kano, Katsina, Kaduna and Osun gubernatorial elections following the move of the opposition party (APC) seeking for a review of both Zamfara and Bayelsa states governorship polls, where the PDP came out victorious.

The APC demanded for a review of the apex court judgment on the Zamfara and Bayelsa states governorship polls, After the PDP candidate in the Imo governorship contest, Emeka Ihedioha, applied to the apex court to review its judgment sacking him as governor.

However, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, at a press briefing in Abuja, yesterday, said the APC leaders no longer have respect for the judgement of the Supreme Court and this act is capable of destroying the hard-earned democracy in the country, especially the judiciary system.

He said: “Nigerians know that the APC has been going through a haemorrhage since the Supreme Court delivered valid judgments on Bayelsa and Zamfara, and as a result, they are no longer interested in the logic of these judgments. They have since thrown caution to the wind to destabilise our nation and destroy our hard-earned democracy, especially the judiciary. The APC Federal Government is leading all forms of battles against the rule of law and constitutionalism.

“However, the PDP finds it ludicrous, ridiculous and insulting to the sensibilities and respect of the Supreme Court justices for the APC to hurriedly and malevolently head to the Supreme Court to attempt to arm-twist the lord justices to effect a forceful reversal of the valid, flawless and faultless judgments on Bayelsa and Zamfara states governorship elections.

“Consequently, the National Working Committee of the PDP, after comprehensive consultations, states that our party has no choice left, given the manner the APC has conducted itself, than to ask for a review of the judgment of the Presidential election petition tribunal, where the issue of certificate forgery, and or presentation of false information in aid of qualifications was clearly established against the APC and her presidential candidate.

“The same applies to the judgment on the Katsina governorship election petition, where lawyers also established similar issue of certificate forgery. The PDP equally has no choice than to ask the Supreme Court to review the Kano, Kaduna and Katsina election judgments, because of manifest violence and substantial non-compliance to our electoral law. The PDP also asks the Supreme Court to review its judgment on the Osun governorship election in view of manifest, complete and total disregard to our electoral rules in the conduct of the elections,”

Reacting to this, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said that it is now obvious that the PDP is suffering from idleness after a long while in power and advice that they support the agricultural sector through rice farming so as to get themselves busy.

He said:“The call by the PDP, asking the Supreme Court to review its rulings on the Presidential Election and governorship elections in Osun, Kano, Kaduna and Katsina States, has, once again, exposed the joke the opposition party has turned itself into in our nation’s political space.

“Never in the history of our democratic journey has a political party made mockery of what a responsible opposition politics entails. The PDP’s call has once again, reinforced our party’s belief that the PDP has become a clog in the wheels of our country’s political evolution.

“For the APC, PDP’s latest antics is no surprise. Nigerians would recall that we have consistently reiterated that the opposition party, having been overwhelmingly rejected at the polls in 2015 and 2019, has been exhibiting strange behaviours.

“We believe it has been difficult for some leaders of PDP to cope for so long outside of power. There is obviously a lot of idleness at the Wadata House Secretariat of PDP.

“At this period that our government is working hard to ensure food sufficiency in the country, we urge those jobless characters at the Wadata House to seriously consider taking up rice farming. This would make them useful for our country,”
