The governorship election petitions tribunal’s decision validating the election of Gov. Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been rejected by the Kaduna State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which has said it will appeal the decision to the Court of Appeal.
This information was revealed by Mr. Alberah Catoh, the state’s PDP publicity secretary, in a statement made accessible to journalists on Friday in Kaduna.
Catoh stated last night that the PDP’s attorney had reviewed the judgement and found that it did not adhere to the standards of substantive justice.
The reaction came hours after the tribunal, sitting in Kaduna, upheld Sani’s election.
He further argued that the verdict was not in alignment with extant electoral laws, guidelines and regulations.
“The party has accordingly directed its lawyers to appeal the judgment at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, within the timeframe specified by law,” the statement added.
Catoh also urged PDP teeming supporters across the state to be calm and of good cheer in the belief that though the walk to justice is slow, they would reach their destination. (NAN)
