Supreme Court Will Correct ‘Errors’ In Tribunal Verdict-PDP BoT

The Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) thinks the party will receive justice in the Supreme Court over the February 25 presidential election won by Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Presidential Election Petitions Court dismissed petitions brought by the PDP, the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), the Labour Party (LP), and its presidential candidates disputing Tinubu’s victory in a 12-hour marathon judgement on September 6.

The five-man panel led by Justice Haruna Tsammani not only dismissed the consolidated petitions of the PDP, APM, and LP, but it also unequivocally affirmed Tinubu’s, a former governor of Lagos State, win in the presidential election.

However, a week after the judgement, the PDP BoT rejected it, claiming that the APC was attempting to impose one-party control on Nigerians.

The acting Chairman of the BoT, Senator Adolphus Wabara, expressed confidence that the apex court has the capacity and courage to right the “wrongs” and correct the “errors” contained in the tribunal judgement in the interest of the country’s unity, stability, and corporate existence in a communique issued following the 75th meeting of the board in Abuja on Thursday.

“The BoT is confident in the Supreme Court’s capacity and courage to ultimately and decisively right the wrongs and correct the manifest errors contained in the PEPC Judgement in the interest of our country’s unity, stability, and corporate existence,” he said.

“The Board of Trustees reiterates its rejection of the Presidential Election Petition Court’s (PEPC) judgement upholding the declaration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the February 25, 2023, Presidential election, despite clear evidence to the contrary.”


“The BoT is also monitoring and studying the outcomes of cases in various election courts in terms of their adherence to and respect for the Rule of Law and evidence before such court.”
