Cross River PDP vows to fight

The Peoples Democratic Party in Cross River State has promised to overturn a high court verdict in Abuja presided over by Justice Taiwo Taiwo, which declined to remove the state governor, , and his deputy, Ivara Esu, for defecting from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress.

“I want to use this opportunity to thank all our teeming supporters for the courageous support for the party despite the provocation inflicted on us by unscrupulous elements who were mistakenly given the mandate of the party in the past and the unfortunate turn of events,” PDP state chairman Venatius Ikem said in a statement titled “Court Judgment: Re: PDP’s Stolen mandate…”

“The Federal High Court in Abuja’s judgement from yesterday (Thursday) is another another effective study of the depth of legal jurisprudence in uncharted area like the one we’re dealing with.

“Let me assure you that this judgement is only a part of the larger picture envisioned by our lawyers when they began looking into this legal option, which has the potential to elevate both the judiciary and our entire democracy to new heights.”

“As they lead us in this battle for the soul of our democracy and good governance of our people,” he said, they will continue to support their lawyers.

“In this uncharted territory, it will remain a civilised struggle and an intellectual exploration of the limits and vastness of our jurisprudence.” We will be examining the entire verdict with the intention of appealing to the next court of law until justice is done.”

Ikem encouraged party members to take solace in the fact that, as an opposition party, they have “refused to let them sleep well with our stolen mandate and will continue to keep them awake for the rest of the tenure,” which they brazenly flaunt at us who made it happen.

“We know they now regret their ill-fated venture, but we will keep preaching that the PDP was elected to govern our people in 2019 because our people are PDP, body and soul.”

He urged party members not to be discouraged by temporary setbacks, but to keep their eyes on the wider picture, which will emerge only once the Supreme Court rules on all of the matters at hand.
