PDP governors blast Oyegun over Supreme Court judgements

05 February 2016, 14:08

Abuja - Governors elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party and former spokesperson for ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe have lambasted the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun for his recent comments against Supreme Court judgments, reports NewsDay.

Oyegun had while reacting to the apex court’s ruling on the governorship elections in Rivers and Akwa Ibom States, lamented that the PDP was now in control of the oil-rich Niger Delta.

Oyegun had also berated the Supreme Court justices and called for investigation into their rulings.

The PDP governors while reacting to Oyegun’s outbursts said rather than uniting Nigeria, the APC is more interested in who controls the resources, so as to use it as an instrument of cronyism.

The governors noted that Nigerians need to begin fervent intercession for the APC and its Chairman for God to deliver them from their dangerous inclinations to plunge this country into fascism.

On his part, Okupe said it was unfortunate that Oyegun could lament PDP’s control of oil-producing states.

He stated that while Oyegun in his parochial and mercantile political effusion is beclouded by financial considerations, the respected judges of the Supreme Court must adjudicate on the principles of law, equity and justice.
