PDP Hails Court For Jailing APC Rigging Prof… Says More are going to be delivered to Book
The Peoples Democratic Par, (PDP) commends the judiciary for its courage to face the side of the people to jail one among the corrupt returning officers. who connived with the All Progressive Congress (APC) to rewrite election results against the PDP within the 2019 generalelections.
The party said the three years jailed term handed to Prof. Peter Ogban, a professor of soil science at the University of Calabar, for manipulating the results of Akwa-lbom Northwest senatorial election and attempting to foist the APC and its rejected candidate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, on the people, maybe a huge lesson for compromised individuals working for the APC to subvert the desire of thepeople.
The POP asserts that the long arm of the law will soon catch up with other corrupt returning
°th cers’ Lce7s°le shameless professors who bribed 19d compromised b/ the APC to altresutsardigitiiZ:erat various the 2019
It is shameful that individuals who had attained the height of enviable career within the academia
Such individuals can now see the deplorable situation of economic depression.excruciating fraudulent hand ardship, terrorism. killings, kidnapping, social and infrastructural decay. which the unpatriotic action has plunged our nation.
If these unpatriotic elements had not manipulated our electoral process in favour of APC and allowed the desire of the people to prevail, our nation wouldn’t have found herself during this sorrystate.
Our party holds that this courageous judgment would stand as a deterrent to the compromised returning officers and a sign to the APC that result alterations will haven’t any space within the 2023 election.
Ahead of the off-season elections also because of the 2023 general elections. the PDP urges Nigerians and therefore the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to stay vigilant as more effort is being made to bring other compromised electoral officers. who brought this misfortune on our nation, to book.
