“Avoid Making Provocative Statements on Election Petition” – PDP BoT Chairman Warns Wike, Others

Adolphus Wabara, chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) board of trustees (BoT), has called on members of the party to refrain from making provocative statements about the ongoing presidential election case.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Wabara made the appeal on Thursday while addressing members of the BoT in a meeting held at the party’s headquarters in Abuja.

“I appeal to all members of the BOT to refrain from making provocative and incisive public statements about the ongoing presidential election case and the party as we seek justice at the Supreme Court,” he said.

Wabara’s appeal comes after the presidential election tribunal struck out the petition filed by the PDP and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, against President Bola Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 election.

The tribunal ruled that Abubakar could not prove claims of vote rigging and other irregularities.

Among others, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, has recently commented on the case brought forward by the PDP. The former Rivers governor commended the presidential election petition tribunal for addressing issues raised in the petitions.

“I have always told people that election petition is not like any other case. It is a special area. It is not by propaganda,” he said.

“It is not won on social media. It is a presentation of evidence and facts. Not what you said to your supporters outside,” he added.
