PDP Rejects Presidential Election Petition Court Judgment


PDP To Head To Appeal Court, 

....Says Judgement Delivered By PEPC Is Against Electoral Act, Facts, Evidence Presented In Court.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following the Presidential Election Petition Judgement delivered on Wednesday issued a statement through the office of its National Publicity Secretary Hon. Debo Ologunagba rejecting the Judgement. 

"As a Party, we have had an initial review of the Judgment as delivered by the PEPC and we unequivocally reject the said Judgement in its entirety.

" The Judgement is against reason, against the facts and evidence presented in Court; against the relevant Electoral Laws, Guidelines and Regulations as well as the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended). Indeed, the Judgment is generous in technicalities and very short in delivering substantial justice in the matter. 

"The PDP, as a law-abiding political Party, will with our lawyers, have a comprehensive review of the Judgment and decide on the next line of action within the ambit of the law.

" The PDP calls on Nigerians to remain at alert, calm and united as our Party continues to lead the charge to defend Democracy and ensure that the Will of the people as expressed in the February 25, 2023 Presidential election is respected and restored," Ologunagba added.
