The PDP on its part said it remains determined to pursue a “credible electoral system that can guarantee a government that truly derives its legitimacy from the people”.

The PDP’s statement partly reads:

“The PDP and indeed majority of Nigerians are alarmed, disappointed and gravely concerned with the reasoning of the Supreme Court.

“The PDP asserts that it is indeed a sad commentary for our democracy that the Supreme Court failed to uphold the provisions of the law. Instead, it trashed the expectation of majority of Nigerians who looked up to it as a Temple of Impartiality.”

“Nigerians are still at a loss as to how the Supreme Court condoned the serious issues of forgery, falsehood and perjury on the altar of technicalities.

“The PDP remains undeterred and charges Nigerians not to be discouraged or allow the judgement to detract from their collective quest for the entrenchment of a credible electoral system that can guarantee a government that truly derive its legitimacy from the people.”....CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
