The All Progressives Congress has been described by the Peoples Democratic Party as mere manipulators ahead of the Supreme Court review ruling on Monday.
PDP in a statement released through its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that its decision to seek a review of the apex court’s judgement that sacked it governorship candidate, Emeka Ihedioha as Imo State Governor was not an affront on the court.
The main opposition party noted that the party is returning to the court because the APC and its candidate in Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, allegedly misled the Supreme Court judges leading to the first ruling.
PDP noted that it brought democracy to Nigeria and knows its rights, the party further stated that the Supreme Court will not fine its lawyers for filing the case review application.
The statement reads: “One thing you must give to the APC is its capacity for manipulation; whether in a political environment or in the judicial environment. They are just mere manipulators.”
“There is nowhere were the PDP sat down to contemplate or express fear over the decision to ask the Supreme Court to guard its own infallibility. Nowhere!”
“We understand democracy better than the APC, we know the import of democracy, we know our right within the confines of democracy. And such we owe it a responsibility to our country because we all belong to the same nation.”
“So, if there are errors in what the APC and its candidate, Hope Uzodinma, had deliberately laid before the Supreme Court and pushed the court into taking the wrong decision, we have a responsibility as a party that brought democracy to Nigeria to point out those errors and I do not think we have acted wrong, rather we have acted on the part of justice,” the party said.
