Imo PDP Guber Candidate Reacts To Adeleke's Supreme Court Victory

Imo PDP Guber Candidate Reacts To Adeleke's Supreme Court Vi

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Imo State, Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu, has reacted to Tuesday's Supreme Court judgement in favour of Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State.

Anyanwu who described the judgement as victory for democracy noted that in like manner, PDP will recover all its lost mandates from the court.

Anyanwu through his Spokesman of the Guber candidate Ikenna Onuoha described APC's government in the country as unpopular and stated that the party cannot retain power by manipulating the legal system.

He added that the innovations in the 2022 electoral Act such as the introduction of BVAS for accreditation and transmission of election results from polling units in real time is helping to checkmate their fraudulent activities.

While congratulating Governor Adeleke and the people of Osun State, Anyanwu, therefore, enjoined the judiciary to continue to dispense justice without fear or favour in order to sustain democracy in Nigeria.

The apex court affirmed the March 25 judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja which earlier upheld Adeleke’s victory.

The Appeal Court had, in its judgement, set aside an earlier judgment by the Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which held in favour of Oyetola and sacked Adeleke.
