PEPC Appeal: We’re optimistic our appeal will succeed at Supreme Court - PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party has expressed optimism that it’s challenge to the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court upholding President Bola Tinubu’s election victory will succeed at the Supreme Court. 

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba, in a statement, in Abuja, on Sunday, explained that the party’s confidence was hinged on provisions of the Nigerian Constitution and relevant sections of the Electoral Act ( As amended ). 

He said, “As the Supreme Court commences hearing on the February 25, 2023 Presidential Election Appeal, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is confident that guided by the provisions of the law, the body of evidence, circumstances and facts presented before it, the Apex Court will deliver justice in the matter.

“The PDP believes that the issues of the February 2023 Presidential election; the barefaced violation of rules and the laws, the brazen manipulations and falsification in perversion of our electoral process have put our democracy in a precarious situation.

“Nigerians and indeed the whole world look forward to the Supreme Court for justice in the hope that the Court will apply the laws, including the express provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), the Electoral Act, 2022 and INEC Guidelines and Regulations in delivering substantial justice in the matter.

“The earnest expectation of Nigerians and lovers of democracy across the world is that the Supreme Court will use this case to firmly validate the maxim that the Judiciary is the last hope of the common man.

“Nigerians are therefore optimistic in hoping that the Supreme Court will dispense substantial Justice according to law and fact in the Appeal.”
