PDP To Approach Apex Court Over Tribunal Judgement

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Ogun state chapter, Chief Sikirulai Ogundele has described the judgement of the Presidential election tribunal in favour of President Buhari as a “mess.”

Naija News reports that Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, had approached the Presidential Tribunal in Abuja, the Nigeria’s capital to declare him winner, arguing that the election was rigged in favour of Buhari.

However, the Tribunal on Wednesday, September 11, lead by Justice Mohammed Garba, said the PDP and Atiku failed to provide enough evidence to support the claims in the petition and reaffirmed President Buhari as the winner of 2019 presidential election.

While reacting to the judgement of the tribunal, Ogundele, berated the Nigerian judiciary, saying that “it was not competent enough to deliver a fair judgment.”

“Personally, I’m not disappointed. It is expected of the judiciary as it had long been giving incompetent judgements.

” I don’t see them as competent and efficient enough to give a correct judgment.

“The judiciary has proven to the world that it has subjected itself to intimidation and harassment,” he said.

Ogundele added that “we have, however, agreed to move ahead to the apex court.”
