The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has applauded the members of the tribunals over rulings in suits challenging the victories of governors Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State and Darius Ishaku of Taraba.
The party thanked members of the tribunal that presided over the matters for their courage and patriotism in delivering justice in the interest of the people.
The party stated this while congratulating the two governors for their respective victories at the governorship election petitions tribunal.
In a statement on Friday by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party described the upholding of the elections of the governors as the triumph of the collective will and aspirations of the people of the two states as amply expressed in the March governorship elections.
“Indeed, the spontaneous jubilations that greeted the verdict across the two states are resounding testimonies of the legitimacy and acceptance of the leadership of the governors, unarguably because of their exceptional commitments in repositioning and empowering their states along critical sectors of life.
“The PDP is particularly happy to observe the commitment of Governor Udom in developing Akwa Ibom state, including his outstanding implementation of unique industrialization initiatives in key areas, particularly manufacturing, aviation, education, healthcare and other critical sectors.
“In Taraba State, the PDP salutes Governor Darius Ishaku’s massive developmental stride in vital sectors, especially agriculture, education, infrastructural projects, security, among others, despite daunting challenges.
“The PDP also applauds the members of the tribunal for their courage and patriotism in delivering justice in the interest of the people,” the statement read in part.
The party, meanwhile, has called on the governors as well as all other officials elected and appointed on its platform to continue to render selfless services to their people in line with the manifesto and guiding principles of the PDP, “as a party committed to the wellbeing of Nigerians at all times”.
