Presidential Poll: We’ll not only take Legal Action, we’ll Petition UN Over Outcome – PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has vowed not to leave any stone unturned in challenging the results of the elections held on the 23rd of February in court.

The opposition party also said it will petition the United Nations (UN) on what it described as the militarization of the polls.

This was the decision reached from the party’s extended caucus meeting which held in Abuja and presided by the party chairman, Uche Secondus.

Secondus, who accused INEC and security operatives of compromise during the elections said he is concerned that the same scenario will play out at the Governorship and National assembly elections on the 9th of March.

Secondus also demanded the release of the Son-in-law and lawyer of Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, claiming that the arrest is a witchhunt and an infringement of rights.

Harassment and blackmailing of Atiku
Speaking with the newsmen, PDP Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of blackmailing and harassing Atiku, hence, the reason he has the resolve to seek litigation

While alleging that the ruling party bribed smaller political parties to ask Atiku not to go to court, Ologbondiyan said the APC is afraid of what the litigation would reveal, adding that the PDP has vowed to reclaim its “stolen mandate”.

He also noted that many of its chieftains who were at the caucus meeting are prepared for the Governorship and National assembly elections billed for the weekend.

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to come out en mass and resist what he described as intimidation by the military.
