PDP to demand Buhari’s removal by Supreme Court

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said on Monday it will ask the Supreme Court to reverse its judgment which ratified the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The opposition party is also set to challenge the apex court judgment that revalidated the election of Governors Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna), Abdulahi Ganduje (Kano), Aminu Masari (Katsina) and Adegboyega Oyetola (Osun) – all of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

But the APC dismissed the planned move as “no surprise”, adding that the PDP is made up of “jobless characters” who should “consider taking up rice farming.”

PDP spokesman Kola Ologbodiyan told reporters on Monday that the party’s demand for a review of the Supreme Court verdict is hinged on the request by the APC for the Supreme Court to reverse itself  on  governorship elections in Zamfara and Bayelsa states.

The Supreme Court in October 2019 dismissed an appeal by the PDP and its Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar to overturn the result of February’s presidential poll won by  President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC candidate.

The judgment delivered by Chief Justice Tanko Muhammad  brought an end to a bitter eight-month legal tussle that trailed the announcement of the result by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The PDP described the judgment as “provocative and barefaced subversion of justice.”
