This time, the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is armed with a petition which it plans to hand over to the United States of America, the United Kingdom and the European Union (EU) through their various embassies.

In the petition, the PDP would be detailing its grievances and allegations against the CJN and the Supreme Court, especially in regard to recent judgements for which its members and loyalists have been carrying out protests across the country.

In a short notice to the public, the party said the presentation of the petitions to the foreign bodies is in continuation of its protests.

The protest, according to the notice, would have members of the party's board of trustees, the National Assembly and other stakeholder taking part.

In a related report, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto state after his appointment as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s governors' forum has revealed how he will work to move the opposition party forward.

Tambuwal said that he will start by trying to reunite all aggrieved governors on the platform of the PDP and get them to fully key into the vision of the party both now and in the future, Daily Trust reports.

He said that his tenure as the head of the forum will bring about unity and repositioning of the party in the capacity of his office.

Speaking on the issue of the Supreme Court's ruling that removed Emeka Ihedioha as the former governor of Imo and installed Hope Uzodinma in his place, Tambuwal said that the PDP will do everything in its power to ensure that justice is served at last.

Still on politics, the year 2023 may be considered far away by many people, but not Nigerian politicians. Just months after the 2019 general elections, the scheming and strategising for the next general poll have started.
