BREAKING: PDP reacts to Supreme Court verdicts on governorship elections

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State, and Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State following the Supreme Court’s affirmation of their victories in the March 18, 2023 governorship elections.

The PDP hailed the Supreme Court’s decisions as resounding victories for democracy and a triumphant expression of the people’s will in Bauchi, Plateau, and Zamfara States.

The party noted that the jubilation across the three states, is a testament that ”the judgments align with the expectations of Nigerians in their pursuit of justice, the rule of law, and the deepening of constitutional democracy.”

Part of the statement signed by the PDP national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, read: ”On Bauchi, the judgment of the Supreme Court is a validation of the aspiration of the people of the State in their resolve to defend and preserve good governance as epitomized in the people-oriented leadership style and life-changing achievements of Governor Bala Mohammed for which they overwhelmingly re-elected him on March 18, 2023.

”Our party remains proud of Governor Bala Mohammed’s legacy achievements in citizen empowerment, human capital and infrastructural developments across all sectors of life since his assumption of office as governor in May 2019.

”On Plateau State, the PDP commends the courage of the Supreme Court in upholding the will of the people and showing that indeed, the Judiciary is the last hope of the common man.

”The verdict came as a seal of the triumph of the manifest resilience of the women, youths and the entire people of Plateau State in their determination to liberate their State from the stranglehold of oppressive anti-people forces.

”Governor Mutfwang’s election marked a new beginning of purposeful and people-oriented leadership that has eluded Plateau State in the last eight years. This is evident in his proactive and transformative achievements in critical sectors in the State despite daunting challenges.

”On Zamfara State, the PDP applauds the Supreme Court for upholding justice by overturning the reprehensible attempt by anti-democratic forces to suppress the expressed will of the people of Zamfara State who voted overwhelmingly for Dr. Lawal in their determination to rescue their State from an overtly corrupt, reckless, insensitive and depraved regime.

”Our party congratulates the people of Zamfara State and salutes Governor Lawal for his efforts in restoring the security of lives and property and deploying his expertise in the management of resources as manifest in the array of empowerment and development programmes in critical sectors since his assumption of office in May 2023.”

The PDP further urged the governors to continue delivering people-oriented development programs and projects in line with the party’s policy thrust, vision, and manifesto.
