PDP to challenge election results in court

The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party met on Wednesday in Abuja, where it reviewed  the outcome of the April 11 governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections.

Members of the National Working Committee of the PDP, who met at the party’s national secretariat, agreed to summon all candidates of the party to an emergency meeting in Abuja on Tuesday and Wednesday next week to enable the party to decide the possibility of challenging the outcome of the elections at tribunals.

The NWC also resolved that it would resist any further attempt to subvert the members will in the governorship rerun in Abia, Imo and Taraba states.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Olisa Metuh, who briefed journalists after the meeting, said the party would meet all candidates of the party that contested the governorship and senatorial elections on Tuesday and the House of Representatives candidates on Wednesday.

The outcome of the two meetings, he said, would determine whether or not the party would challenge the outcome of the elections at the various tribunals or not.

Metuh charged members of the party not to despair and urged them to come out en masse to vote in the three governorship re-run scheduled for next week.

He raised the alarm over an alleged plot by the All Progressives Congress to distabilise the PDP, using disgruntled members of the ruling party.

Metuh, however, vowed that the Party would resist such “devilish” plot.
