The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the Supreme Court verdicts affirming the party’s victory in Abia and Akwa Ibom states governorship elections have rekindled hope and trust in the  judiciary.

A statement yesterday by the party’s Acting National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, said with the judgments, the judiciary has stamped its feet as the bastion of democracy.

The apex court  on Wednesday affirmed the victories of Governors Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom) and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia).

The statement said: “Indeed, the PDP and all lovers of democracy in the country commend the maturity and patriotism being displayed by the Supreme Court in dispensing justice, a development, which has strengthened the confidence of the people in democracy and rule of law.

“Wednesday’s judgment on Abia and Akwa-Ibom, coming after the apex court had last week handed justice in affirming the elections of Governors Nyesom Wike and Dave Umahi of Rivers and Ebonyi states respectively, have not only put a seal on the popularity of our governors, as duly reflected in the elections, but also that of the PDP, irrespective of the temporary setback of the 2015 general elections.

“Nigerians are no longer in doubt of the fact that in spite of the electoral challenges, the PDP remains the only pan-Nigeria party, committed to the national interest, with the capacity, vision and direction to deliver and sustain a united and prosperous country; the reason we are working hard to regain power at the center in 2019.

“While congratulating our governors and indeed, all well-meaning Nigerians for this triumph of democracy, we restate our charge to all PDP elected and appointed office holders at all levels across the country to continue to patriotically exert themselves, while maintaining the lead in providing purposeful leadership in line with the ideology and visions of PDP founding fathers.

“Despite the challenges, we assure Nigerians that we will not relent but continue to be steadfast in showing leadership at all levels especially at this point where other political platforms offer no hope or governance direction to the people.”
