The governors elected on the platform of the Democratic People’s Party (PDP) have expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari will be dismissed by the Supreme Court.
The PDP Governors Forum stated this by supporting the party’s offer to challenge the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court, which rejected the party’s request and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The forum statement was signed and made available to journalists on Sunday by its president and governor of the state of Bayelsa, Seriake Dickson.
The governors pointed out that if the court’s ruling is not contested, it can become an obstacle in the country’s democracy wheel, as it will supposedly send wrong signals to future generations of Nigerians.
The statement added: “After carefully and prudently studying the principles of the line behind the trial line, several holes were selected and we identified innumerable anomalies.
“We would be doing more damage and moral injustice to our party, our democracy and Nigerians in general if we turn a blind eye, swallow so much bile and applaud that violation of justice.”
“The trial, to say the least, has painted our judiciary even more with darker colors, only this time with a tar-tarn layer never seen before.
“However, we hope that the Supreme Court will rewrite that history ensuring that such stains and tar are removed from our judicial archives.
“The main court must know that its integrity is at stake and, to prevent it from becoming particles, it must employ all known technicalities to save our nation and the future of Nigerians not yet born of a development that can make us laugh even more constantly, stocks among the community of nations, and Nigerians have high hopes that these mistakes will be corrected.
“Without an iota of fear, it is of utmost importance for us once again to reaffirm and confirm our undiluted loyalty, deserving support and maximum commitment to our great party and the Atiku-Obi presidential ticket. This is our stand, now and in the future Posterity would judge us harshly if we did the opposite.
