The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun, on Tuesday, vowed that the judgment of the State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal would not deter the party from pursuing justice and protecting the rights and aspiration of the citizens of the state.
Mr Sikirulai Ogundele, the State Chairman of the Party, disclosed this at a news conference in Abeokuta.
Ogundele explained that the party had decided to take the matter to the appellate courts.
The PDP chairman noted that the party believed a
more thorough and impartial assessment of the evidence and allegations would
take place at the appellate.
He added that the party remained resolute in its determination to ensure that the truth prevailed.
He insisted that the petition of the party as regards the March 18 governorship election contained detailed and compelling evidence of alleged over-voting,
voters’ disenfranchisement, harassment of voters and ballot box snatching.
Ogundele stated that the allegations were not frivolous, saying they were grounded in credible testimonies and substantial documentation.
” The people of Ogun state deserve an impartial and thorough examination of these
claims to ensure that the electoral process remains untainted.
” We extend our gratitude to our supporters, who have shown resilience and unwavering faith in our cause.
” We call on all well-meaning citizens and stakeholders in Ogun State to join us in our quest for justice and in upholding
the principles of democracy.
” Together, we will continue the fight for a brighter future for our beloved state. The PDP assures the
people of Ogun state that the good governance they truly deserve will be realised in no distance time,” he said.
