THE Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday said the judgment of the Supreme Court, upholding the nullification of the primaries of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers state, was a victory for democracy and the rule of law.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement also lauded the apex court for its courage in delivering the landmark judgment.
He stated that the judgement has saved the nation from a serious constitutional crisis that could have marred the 2019 general elections.
He said, “The judgment of the Supreme Court serves as a huge lesson to politicians and political parties, to eschew impunity and always conduct their affairs in a manner that is in tandem with the provision of the law.
“The courage displayed by the Supreme Court in delivering the judgment at this critical time in our national life has also restored the confidence of Nigerians in the institution of the Judiciary and our democratic order.
“The PDP, however, urges its teeming members across the country to continue to work hard in consolidating on the already established victory of our great party in all elections, beginning with next Saturday’s Presidential election.” – Punch
