2015 elections: PDP governors hail Supreme Court verdicts

04 February 2016, 13:11

Abuja - Governors elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have hailed the Supreme Court for upholding the elections of all its governors.

The governors described the court as the 'saviour of democracy' in the country.

In a statement Wednesday after the court upheld the elections of Governors Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom and Okey Ikpeazu of Abia State, the PDP Governors’ Forum said the verdicts have reinforced the belief that the judiciary remains the hope of the common man.

The statement signed by Osaro Onaiwu, coordinator of the Forum, stated that “what the apex court has done was to save the country from being balkanised by the APC in its avowal to undermine the integrity of the courts and jettison the sacredness of the ballot box”.

"Tthe PDP would continue to work to strengthen the country’s legal process as well as democratic norms."

While congratulating the governors for their victories, the Forum expressed confidence that they would continue to work hard to improve the lives of their people, which the party had not failed to do over the years.

The PDP Governors's Forum called on states like Edo and Ondo whose elections would hold later in the year to identify with the PDP to reap the dividends of democracy.
