PDP insists on going to court


The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Uche Secondus, said there is no going back on the party’s decision to seek redress in court over alleged manipulation of February 23 election in favour of the ruling All Progressive Congress.

Secondus stated this against the backdrop of the meeting between members of the National Peace Committee led by former Head of States, Abubarkar Abdulsalam and the party leadership in Abuja.

Speaking at a press conference to update newsmen about post election plans of the PDP, the chairman reiterated that the party was equivocally committed to purpose the matter to a logical conclusion.

He said, “We will go to court. Nobody will stop us from going to court and bring out all of the facts both the international observers and some people have not seen.

“We will unearth them at the court and I believe that justice will be done at the court.

“Because, if we continue to suppress injustice and go sentimental, the country will continue to pile on gun powder that will explode one day.

“So much injustice has been done in this country and if we allow it and it continues to pile, nobody knows what will happen.

“So, that’s why we decided as good citizens and law-abiding and people who believe in rule of law that we will go.”
