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.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
