S’Court Verdict: Secondus says victory comes from God
NATIONAL Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP), Uche Secondus has reacted to the judgement of the Supreme Court on Wednesday which ruled against the Party’s appeal on lack of merit.
In a statement signed by the SA on Media to the National Chairman, Ike Abonyi, Secondus said the apex court has given its judgement but the final judgement comes from God.
Secondus said Nigerians know they voted PDP, even All Progressive Party, APC knows that Nigerians rejected them in the February 23 elections and the International community knows Nigerian voted PDP.
“If Supreme Court of seven justices says otherwise, leave it to God the ultimate Judge,” the statement read.
He saluted Nigerians for their commitment and support for the party, most especially their commitment to democracy and its tenets despite inhibiting factors.
He also commended the press their commitment to democracy and good governance in Nigeria, urging them not to relent in their roles of holding politicians accountable to the people.
The party Chairman said the people should remain resolute in their prayers since the country is in such an untidy state, and that only God could bail her out.
A seven-man panel led by the Chief Justice of the Nation, Ibraheem Tanko Mohammed has upheld the decision of the Presidential Electoral Petition Panel that ruled that the PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar could not prove their case beyond reasonable doubt that APC candidate, Muhammadu Buhari won the February 23 Presidential Election.
