The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees (BoT) has expressed optimism that the Supreme Court will right the wrong in the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) upholding the victory of President Bola Tinubu.
In a communique issued after its 75th meeting in Abuja on Thursday, the BoT Chairman, Senator Adolphus Wabara, said the board rejected the PEPC’s judgment and was resolved to take urgent steps to resist the ruling All Progressives Congress’ (APC) desperation to turn Nigeria into a one-party state.
Wabara said the BoT was confident in the Supreme Court’s capacity and courage to right the wrongs and correct the manifest errors in the PEPC’s judgment. He commended the PDP’s Presidential Candidate, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, for following due process in his quest to retrieve the presidential mandate.
The BoT also expressed concerns over the hardship, insecurity and general sense of apprehension across the country occasioned by the implementation of policies of the APC administration.
Wabara said the BoT was seriously worried over the continued fall in the value of the naira arising from the ill-implemented policies of the APC with attendant devastating negative effect on the economy resulting in agonizing high costs and unbearable pressure on families.
Wabara also expressed worry over the current situation in the country, saying that Nigerians looked unto the PDP for solution and direction.
“The BoT assures Nigerians that in spite of the challenges, the PDP remains united, stronger and more determined to continue to lead the charge to rescue our democracy and return our nation to the path of credible elections, rule of law, national cohesion and economic prosperity,” he said.
