The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday announced its intention to protest the Supreme Court ruling that sacked Emeka Ihedioha as governor of Imo state.
The protest is billed for Monday, January 20 in Abuja. The aggregation point is the PDP complex, Legacy House, from where the party members will go around the city to show their displeasure at the ruling.
This is contained in a statement signed by the party’s national organising secretary, Col. Austin Akobundu (rtd) and made available to newsmen.
He said the party’s leaders, including its national chairman, Uche Seconds, and the National Executive Committee (NEC) have given their go-ahead to the planned protest.
“In line with the approval of the National Executive Committee of our great party, the National Chairman has directed that a peaceful, civil and non-violent protest be organised in the FCT to register the displeasure of the party against the current state of affairs in the country, especially the miscarriage of justice of the Supreme Court against the lawfully elected governor of Imo State.
“This is a clarion call to all lovers of democracy as we join hands to save our dear nation.
“God bless the Peoples Democratic Party. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the statement read.
