PDP calls for calm after tribunal’s verdict on Niger East senate seat

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called on its members to remain calm and committed to winning the forthcoming general elections.

This is contained in a statement issued by Hassan Saba, Public Relations Officer of PDP in Niger State in Minna on Friday.

The statement followed the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal’s verdict nullifying the election of Nuhu Zagbayi, PDP, in favour of David Umaru of the APC on January 30.

A by-election was held in August 2014 in which Zagbayi was declared winner.

The statement said PDP was studying the judgment.

“PDP remains the winning party. The judgment will make the party more determined to win the forthcoming general elections across the country.

“We call on our teeming supporters to remain calm. The judgment has further motivated us to work harder to harness established electoral fortunes of the PDP.

“We are not deterred, we have been victorious, and we will always remain committed to sustain our victories in the state since 1999.

“I call on our party faithful to collect their voter cards before the general elections.

“You must get your voter cards to elect PDP candidates across all elective positions especially the zone B senatorial candidate”, it added. (NAN)
