The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding the election of Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, as a triumph of democracy and the rule of law.
The party said the ruling is a testimony that the judiciary is still the last hope of the common man having sustained the wishes and aspirations of the people of Ekiti State as expressed in the June 21, 2014 governorship election.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Tuesday said that the ruling has “given hope to the survival of democracy especially coming at a time when some officials of key institutions of democracy such as INEC and some security personnel, have already started compromising their independence apparently under the dictates of an obsessive APC.
The party congratulated Governor Fayose and the people of Ekiti State for their doggedness in the face of daunting challenges from anti-democratic forces and urged the governor to be magnanimous in victory while using his mandate to deliver good governance in line with the PDP manifesto and vision of the founding fathers.
The PDP restated its resolve to continue to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the governor and the people of the state and vowed to resist any form of political intimidation or blackmail aimed at destabilising the state.
“In this regard, we warn all anti-democratic forces hiding in the state, especially the outgoing APC lawmakers against any action intended directly or indirectly to destabilize the state or undermine this democratically elected PDP government under Governor Ayo Fayose”, the party said.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
