The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the Supreme Court to review its judgement on the presidential election that affirmed President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the 2019 presidential election.

Speaking to newsmen on Monday, the spokesperson of the PDP, Kola Ologbodinyan, also urged the Apex Court to review judgment in respect of governorship elections in Kaduna, Kano, Katsina and Osun state, which the party lost to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The opposition party stated that the review was needed due to APC’s move seeking a review of the apex court’s judgment on governorship elections in Zamfara and Bayelsa states which the PDP won.

The PDP said: “Consequently, the National Working Committee of the PDP, after comprehensive consultations, states that our party has no choice left, given the manner with which the APC has conducted itself, than to ask for a review of the judgment of the presidential election petition tribunal, where the issue of certificate forgery and or presentation of false information in aid of qualifications was clearly established against the APC and her presidential candidate.

“The same applies to the judgment on the Katsina governorship election petition, where lawyers also established a similar issue of certificate forgery.

“The PDP equally has no choice than to ask the Supreme Court to review the Kano, Kaduna and Katsina election judgments, because of manifest violence and substantial non-compliance to our electoral law.

“The PDP also asks the Supreme Court to review its judgment on the Osun Governorship election in view of manifest, complete and total disregard to our electoral rules in the conduct of the elections.”

The PDP berated the ruling APC was what it described as desperate attempts to subjugate and intimidate the Supreme Court, for the purpose of annexing the apex court over its judgments on Imo, Bayelsa and Zamfara governorship elections – all delivered in favour of the PDP.
