Presidential Election Judgement: Nigerians Are Waiting, PDP Tells Election Tribunal

As expectations get high and Nigerians await the declaration of the verdict of the Presidential Elections Petition Tribunal, the Peoples Democratic Party has told the tribunal that Nigerians are really waiting to see if justice will be served.


This was the thought of the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan while receiving a coalition of Young Professionals on Friday in Abuja.

Recall that the party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar are contesting the results of the February 23 Presidential election which held across the country.

In a statement,  Ologbondiyan also urged Nigerians not to lose faith in the country and its democracy.

He  said, “As a party we have made a solid case before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal. Our candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has  also presented his case supported by credible evidence. We have presented incontrovertible evidence to show that our presidential mandate was stolen. Every Nigerian looks to the judicial officers for justice.

“Nigerians are waiting and hoping that the judiciary will have the courage to do justice in the presidential election petition.”

He further added that, “In the face of the anguish, pains, calamitous events, bloodletting, strong division, resentment, insecurity, acute hunger and starvation crippling our country, Nigerians’ only hope is now in the judiciary to save our nation by addressing the substance of the petition by Atiku and the PDP.

The  convener of the coalition, Alhaji Shehu Magaji, commended the leadership of the party for  mobilising Nigerians  for  the 2019 general elections.
