PDP to Appeal Tribunal’s Verdict on Ekiti Governorship Election
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged all its members, particularly in Ekiti State, not to despair over Monday’s ruling of the Ekiti Governorship election tribunal, which sat in Abuja.
This was contained in a statement made on Monday, by Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary.
The party says the judgment of the tribunal will surely be overturned at the Court of Appeal and victory handed to the PDP and its candidate, Olusola Eleka, who is the clear winner of the July 14, 2018, Ekiti governorship election.
The PDP holds that the Court of Appeal will consider the matter strictly on its merit particularly with the abounding evidence of rigging including violence, vote-buying, ballot stuffing and alteration of results perpetuated by the APC are still intact.
The PDP urged the Lord Justices to stand for justice by restoring the mandate freely given to the PDP candidate, Olusola Eleka, at the July 14, 2018 governorship election in Ekiti state.
The PDP noted that the entire nation and the international community had widely condemned the “manipulation” that marred the Ekiti governorship election and strongly believes that justice will be served at the end of the day.
