The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, made the call while reacting to the court order delivered on Wednesday in Abuja.
“The PDP is a law-abiding party, and we have therefore advised our members to obey accordingly.
“As is being done in every legal matter, there is right of appeal, but in the meantime, the PDP has enjoined our members to obey the decision of the court,’’ Metuh said.
The PDP spokesman stressed that the paramount thing for the party was for peace to be enthroned in Adamawa.
He urged the new governor, who was sworn in earlier in the day, to pursue peace and progress of the state.
He, however, said the state had its own fair share of political turmoil, adding that this was part of its political challenges.
He enjoined the new governor to ensure peace and unity in Adamawa, which he said, were needed by the people.
Metuh urged the chairman of PDP Adamawa chapter to ensure that the party and the people remained united in the state.
“As a PDP member, we can only say to the former Deputy Governor to continue to pursue the party’s programmes for the benefit of the people,’’ he said.
