The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, on Wednesday thanked Nigerians for rallying behind the party and support for efforts aimed at deepening democracy in the country
He stated this in Abuja while reacting to the Supreme Court’s dismissal of the petitions filed by the PDP and its candidate in the February 23 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Ike Abonyi, Secondus noted that though the apex court has given its ruling, the ultimate judgment he comes from God.

He said: “We thank you for your support for PDP, for your commitment to democracy. Nigerians know that you voted PDP; even APC knows that you rejected them on February 23, 2019. The international community knows too you voted for PDP. If Supreme Court of seven justices says otherwise, leave it to God the ultimate Judge.”
He also commended the media for its commitment to democracy and good governance in the land and urged them not to relent in its role of holding leaders accountable to the people.
Secondus, however, urged the people to remain resolute in their prayers to God.
