APC urges PDP not to denigrate judiciary

02 September 2015, 11:15

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop denigrating the judiciary by suggesting that tribunal judges handling the various election petitions can be influenced, reports Vanguard.

The party, which was reacting to comments by the PDP that the federal government plans to replace election tribunal judges in PDP states, said the APC-led Federal Government will not micromanage the judiciary.

The party in a statement issued in Lagos on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, said the PDP is throwing wild allegations against the tribunals in Rivers and other states because the party knows it stole the votes in these states.

He said the PDP is jittery of losing these states because these states are the cash cows of the PDP.

He said the APC has confidence in the ability of the tribunals to carry out their duties diligently and without fear or favour 

He urged the PDP to be charitable enough to repose the same confidence in the tribunals.
