PDP lauds Supreme Court’s refusal to reverse self on Zamfara

By Lateef Ibrahim, Abuja

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the Supreme Court’s refusal to review and reverse its lawful and well-founded judgment, voiding the participation of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidates in Zamfara state in the last general elections.
The party said that by so doing, the Supreme Court has once again saved the nation from a huge constitutional crisis that could have devastated Nigeria’s constitutional democracy and corporate existence as a nation.The PDP said this in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.
The PDP described the demand by the APC to the Supreme Court as blasphemous, a blackmail as well as a measured landmine set by APC leaders in their desperation to ambush and destroy the integrity of the apex court.According to the leading opposition party, “The motive of the APC leaders is to ultimately sequester the institution of the judiciary and foist a totalitarian order on our polity.”It is also instructive to note that by asking the Supreme Court to embark on a journey to nowhere, the APC clearly sought to subvert our democratic system and surreptitiously force on Nigerians, a system that is completely alien to our constitutional democracy and outside the confines and dictates of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).”APC’s demand is a direct threat to our democracy, peace and stability of our nation and shows its unwillingness, as a party, to abide by the rule of law.”It also exposes APC’s penchant for sowing crisis in our nation; a situation that should be condemned by all”, it said.The PDP, therefore, urged all well-meaning Nigerians, various institutions of democracy, as well as security agencies to be cautious of the APC as it has shown that it is not committed to the unity and stability of our dear nation.
