Taraba Election: PDP hails Nigerian judiciary

PDP Headquarters

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday said the Judiciary has shown that it remains the major hope for the survival of democracy in Nigeria.

The opposition party has recently received favourable judgements from Nigeria’s Supreme Court in various appeals challenging the election of its governors.

The Supreme Court has in the last two weeks upheld the elections of Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom and Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State.

The court also on Thursday upheld the election of Darius Ishaku by affirming the judgement of the court of appeal which had earlier also dismissed the decision of the state governorship election tribunal.

“Without such landmark judgments from the Supreme Court, perhaps there would have been no Nigeria and we salute them for their courage in delivering justice to the people.

“We therefore warn APC and the federal Government to stop insulting judiciary as there is nowhere in the world that a ruling party go about hauling abuses on the Judiciary,” PDP said in a statement by its acting chairman, Uche Secondus, on Thursday

Mr. Secondus said with the outcome of Thursday’s ruling, “all hope is not yet lost for democracy”.

According to the PDP chairman, the Supreme Court ruling not only established the judiciary as a functional arm in stabilizing the nation’s polity, but as the voice of the voiceless.

“The ruling is a vivid reflection of the will of the people of Taraba State and goes a long way to show the strength of our party in the state,” he said.

While congratulating Mr. Ishaku for his victory, the PDP chair charged him to remain resolute in delivering dividends of democracy to the people in line with the manifesto of the party.

He also congratulated the people of Taraba state for their “resilience in standing up for democracy”.

Mr. Secondus charged them to remain steadfast in their support for PDP as “the All Progressives Congress APC has nothing to offer Nigerians”.

    Is PDP common man? PDP is a pervasive common looter

  • MushinSpeaks

    PDP is winning court injunction and they are celebrating the judiciary. If it were the opposite they will be crying foul.

  • Pointitout

    Ummmmm! Such is life. They are the last hope of the common man when the tide is on their side but when it turns, they have been bought by Buhari….They should keep quiet and go and enjoy their stolen mandates because the have been told to go and continue to sin.

  • Comfortkay

    PDP cannot hail the judiciary because they are bunch of hypnotised idiots.
