Rivers, Ebonyi: PDP Hails Supreme Court, Puts APC On Notice In Akwa-Ibom
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the government and people of Rivers and Ebonyi states on the Supreme Court’s validation of the elections of Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State.
In a statement issued on Thursday by the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Ibrahim Jalo, the party hailed the Supreme Court for the landmark decision and cited the judgment as a signpost of the evolution of an independent Nigerian judiciary.
In the same vein, the party seized the opportunity to put the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on notice with the forthcoming gubernatorial re-run in Akwa-Ibom State. According to the statement, Akwa-Ibom State is a PDP state and any attempt by the ruling APC to manipulate the forthcoming election will be seriously resisted by the PDP up to the Supreme Court level.
The party called on all its members to remain steadfast in the face of the recent developments that have put the party in the eye of the storm, noting that these were temporary setbacks that will soon be surmounted in the fullness of time.
