The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the Supreme Court judgement that affirmed the election of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as the final triumph of justice and the will of the people over anti-democratic forces.
In a statement issued on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said the judgment had further strengthened the confidence of the people in the integrity of the Supreme Court.
Ologbondiyan added that it also confirmed the court’s readiness to correct any miscarriage of justice at lower stages of justice system, particularly electoral cases.
He said that such fearless verdict was needed at all levels of the justice system to achieve the much-needed stability.
Ologbondiyan congratulated Wike and the people of Rivers State for the landmark ruling.
He said that the ruling consolidated the platform for the governor to continue in his commitment towards greater productivity without further distractions from those who do not wish the state well.
Ologbondiyan said it was optimistic that all its stolen mandates would be retrieved so as to save the nation and give Nigerians the purposeful leadership they yearn for at the trying time.
