As the Supreme Court commences hearing on the February 25, 2023 Presidential Election Appeal, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says it is confident that, guided by the provisions of the law, the body of evidence, circumstances, and facts presented before it, the Apex Court will deliver justice in the matter.

In a statement signed by Debo Ologunagba, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, the main opposition party said it believes that the issues of the February 2023 Presidential election—the alleged violation of rules and laws, the brazen manipulations and falsifications in perversion of the country’s electoral process—have put democracy in a precarious situation.

According to the party, Nigerians and indeed the whole world look forward to the Supreme Court for justice in the hope that the Court will apply the laws, including the express provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), the Electoral Act, 2022 and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Guidelines and Regulations in delivering substantial justice in the matter.

The PDP said the earnest expectation of Nigerians and lovers of democracy across the world is that the Supreme Court will use this case to firmly validate the maxim that the Judiciary is the last hope of the common man.

“Nigerians are therefore optimistic in hoping that the Supreme Court will dispense substantial Justice according to law and fact in the Appeal,” the party said
