PDP Rejects Buhari’s Victory at Tribunal, Says it’s a miscarriage of justice

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected today’s judgement of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal which ruled that the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari, won the February 23, 2019 poll.

The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, says the verdict is provocative, a subversion of justice and a direct assault on the integrity of the nation’s justice system.

The party stated that it was particularly shocked that the tribunal failed to point to justice despite the “flawless evidence laid before it, showing that President Buhari was not only unqualified to contest the election but also did not score the majority of valid votes” at the polls.

PDP stated: “The PDP finds as bewildering that a court of law could validate a clear case of perjury and declaration of false information in a sworn affidavit, as firmly established against President Muhammadu Buhari, even in the face of incontrovertible evidence.

“The party is also rudely shocked that the Court took over the roles of the respondents’ lawyers who clearly abandoned their pleadings by refusing to call evidence in defence of the petition.

“The court raked up all manner of excuses to make up for the yawning gaps occasioned by the total absence of any evidence from the respondents.

“Nigerians and the international community watched in utter disbelief when the tribunal ruled that one need not provide a copy or a certified true copy of educational certificate such individual claimed to possess, contrary to established proof of claims of certification.

“The party notes as strange that the court even went ahead to provide rationalizations in favour of President Buhari, even when all hard facts before it shows that he did not possess the claimed educational certificate and that the Army was not in possession of his WAEC certificate as claimed in the affidavit he deposed to in his Presidential nomination form.

“The PDP also described as shocking that the court approved the flawed declaration of President Buhari as the winner of the election despite evidence to show the perpetration of illegalities, manipulations, alterations and subtraction of valid votes freely given to Atiku Abubakar by Nigerians.

Indeed, the pervading melancholic atmosphere across our nation since the verdict is a direct indication that the judgement has not fulfilled the desires and expectations of Nigerians.

“The PDP, however, encouraged Nigerians to remain calm and not to lose hope or surrender to despondency or self-help, as our lawyers are upbeat in obtaining justice at the Supreme Court.”
