The Ogun State All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as sore losers, having announced rejection of the tribunal judgement which affirmed authenticity of Dapo Abiodun as duly elected Governor of the State.
Penpushing reports that the ruling party in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye said it noticed that it took the opposition party four days to fault the meticulous judgement, a clear indication that the party is shameless in conduct
‘We noticed that it took the PDP about four days after the meticulous judgment of the tribunal that lasted 11 hours, twenty-five minutes, before the party could make a feeble, wishy-washy, reaction to the sound judgment of the tribunal’, Oladunjoye wrote
‘The delayed reaction of the ramshackle party was obviously as a result of serious shame the verdict put the party and its defeated candidate to; as their lordships, section by section, dissected and exposed the incompetence of the petition and the shaky grounds that the petition were premised on’, he added.
‘It is laughable that the PDP agreed that its petition was very faulty in presentation and procedures but complained that the decision of the tribunal was based solely on procedural technicalities’, Oladunjoye added.
‘The conduct of elections, announcement of results and procedures for petitions are not and cannot be based on the whims and caprices of anyone, no matter how fraudulently rich, but on the rules and regulations enunciated in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) and also in the Electoral Act 2022. Any party that cannot keep to the laws of the land is not deserving of victory at the tribunal, let alone governing a dynamic state like Ogun state, the gateway of many firsts in Nigeria’
‘Pray, what was the PDP expecting from the tribunal judges? That the judges should ignore the fact that the PDP filed the statement of its so-called “expert witness out of time? That, against the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022, the PDP lumped its grounds petition together instead of separating them?’
‘The PDP told the tribunal that 49,000 people were disenfranchised but did not call even one of them to testify. Was the party expecting the Judges to help them go out of the court at Isabo and probably go to Kuto market or Oyingbo market to go and look for the so-called “disenfranchised voters” for them?’
Penpushing further reports that All Progressives Congress(APC) emphasized that the belated reaction of Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) over the judgement was the ranting of incompetent sore losers, which should be ignored.
The Publicity Secretary of the ruling party stated that the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and its ‘fugitive Governorship candidate”, Ladi Adebutu, should cover their faces in shame if they have any modicum of shame left in them
