Ndubuisi Orji, Abuja
In the aftermath of the February 23 presidential poll, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that there is no going back on its decision to challenge the election result in court.
The PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, who stated this at a press briefing in Abuja, yesterday, dismissed speculations that the opposition party gave the National Peace Committee some conditions for peace, when they met on Thursday.
Secondus said during the party’s meeting with the General Abdulsalami Abubakar-led peace committee, there were no mention of any condition.
He stated that the committee, only asked the party and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar to state their misgivings about the just concluded presidential, which they did.
The PDP chairman noted that it is imperative for the result of the presidential election to be challenged in court, so that all the alleged malpractices can be exposed.
According to him, “we will go to court. Nobody will stop us from going to court and bring all of the facts both the international observers and some people have not seen. We will unearth them at the courts and I believe that justice will be done at the courts. Because, if we continue to suppress injustice and go sentimental, the country will continue to pile on gun powder that will explode one day. So much injustice has been done in this country and if we allow it and it continues to pile, nobody knows what will happen. “So, that’s why we decided as good citizens and law-abiding and people who believe in rule of law that we will go to court.”
Secondus added that, “when they (Peace Committee) came, they met with us and they requested us to please state our grievances.”
