The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the party for the success recorded by it and its candidates in the just concluded 2019 general elections.

The PDP BoT chairman, Senator Walid Jubrin, sent the party organ’s congratulatory message at a press conference after its 65th meeting held on Thursday, April 4 in Abuja.

Jubrin said that in spite of the challenges faced by PDP candidates in the general elections, they performed well.

He expressed the board’s support to all the party’s candidates who were in court to seek redress for their grievances during the elections.

He stated: “The BOT hereby wishes to congratulate our great party and all our candidates who participated in the 2019 elections, for bracing the odds and strengthening democratic rules and culture.

“This was done in spite of the unprecedented level of militarisation which runs clearly against the letters and spirit of the judgment of the Supreme Court that says the military has no business in the conduct of elections.

“The BOT also wishes to assure Nigerians and all members of our great party, especially those whose mandate were stolen, that the BoT stands by them at all times to reclaim the mandate freely given to them by the good people of Nigeria.”

He expressed the board’s dismay over what he described as systematic erosion of the gains made under the PDP administration in enhancing the credibility of the electoral process over the years.

“The BoT calls on all Nigerians, especially our teeming PDP supporters to stay calm and be law-abiding as we believe justice will take its proper place in spite of the traumatisation of the judicial arm of government by the present administration,” he added.

Meanwhile, former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has saluted the courage of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi state and Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa state for fighting hard to defend the mandate of the people for the opposition party.

Comrade Frank, a political ally of PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, also felicitated with all other PDP governors-elect, senators-elect, House of Representatives members-elect and all the state House of Assembly members-elect across the country.

According to him, by winning more states in the last governorship elections, the PDP is better positioned to clinch the presidential seat in 2023.
