Reacting to the development, the PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan expressed delight with the court verdict and thanked the judiciary for saving the party.
Ologbondiyan also called on all members and supporters of the party to work towards victory at the polls y closing ranks and putting the past behind them.
The statement said: “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) receives with delight, the judgement of the Court of Appeal, which affirmed its candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, for the November 6, 2021 Anambra state governorship election.”
“The party thanks the judiciary for restoring peace and unity in the PDP as well as strengthening the confidence of the people in the PDP ahead of the election.”
“The PDP notes that with the judgement, the time has come for all members, critical stakeholders and teeming supporters of our party to come together as a family to work in the interest of our party and our candidate, Ozigbo, knowing that the people of Anambra state are waiting for the PDP to restore the loses of the past years under the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).”
