The Peoples Democratic Party has cried out over the Supreme Court decision to reserve judgment in the Zamfara State governorship election review case.
Recall the All Progressives Congress approached the apex court to overturn its judgement that voided the party’s victory in all elections in the state and awarded the victory to PDP.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved it judgment over the petition filed before it by APC.
The decision of the court yesterday triggered tension in the main party, leading to an emergency media briefing late yesterday.
The spokesperson of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, who spoke with newsmen said, “another plot by the APC to once again manipulate the judicial process and secure judgment through the back door.”
He noted that “Nigerians will recall that the Supreme Court had consistently decided on the finality of judgments reached the court.”
“As such, all issues bordering on review were never reserved for judgment because of its belief in the infallibility of its own judgment.”
“Our party is concerned that the surprising decision to reserve this judgment is not in tandem with the established practice of the highest court, which was reaffirmed in its judgments on the Bayelsa and Imo state governorship elections, where it dismissed the applications for review on the grounds that it lacked jurisdiction to review its own judgment.”
