- PDP’s national chairman, Secondus, thanked Nigerians for standing by his party despite the party’s loss at the Supreme Court
- Secondus insisted that Nigerians voted for his party’s presidential candidate, Atiku, saying the ruling APC was rejected
- The PDP chairman added that though the apex court has given its ruling, the final judgement belongs to the God almighty
Prince Uche Secondus, the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to the defeat of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, at the Supreme Court.
Channels TV reports that Secondus said though the apex court has given its ruling, the final judgement belongs to God almighty.
Despite the party’s defeat at the 2019 presidential election and its subsequent loss at the tribunal and the Supreme Court, Secondus insisted that Nigerians voted for his party’s candidate just as he alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress was rejected during the poll.
Further reiterating that Nigerians voted for his party in the 2019 poll, Secondus said it is left to God to judge if the seven justices of the apex court ruled otherwise.
He, therefore, expressed the party’s gratitude to Nigerians whom he said were committed to democracy.
In a similar development, the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku, said he had accepted that the judicial choice he made in going to court had come to an end with the loss he suffered at the apex court.
He, however, said that he would leave Nigerians to decide whether justice was really gotten at the court, adding that he would continue to fight for the nation’s democracy despite the recent defeat.
The apex court judgement is eliciting mixed reactions among Nigerians across various political divides.
While some described it as a positive development, some alleged that it was a miscarriage of justice.
Also, some Nigerians advised all the levels of governments to move beyond the judgement and start focusing on delivering good governance to the citizens.
