PDP Youths Commend Governors For Backing Atiku - Presidential Tribunal
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youths yesterday commended the governors for throwing their weight behind the decision of the party's presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to challenge the judgement of the Presidential Elections Petitions Tribunal (PEPT), on the Atiku-Buhari case bordering on the 2019 Presidential Elections.
The youths, under the aegis of PDP South South Youths Vanguard noted that the governors' position was the best decision at this point in time that PDP and Atiku are challenging the case at the Supreme Court.
The PDP Governors, under the aegis of PDP Governors Forum, had in a statement on Sunday said, that the judgement stood justice on its head, and if not challenged at the apex court may constitute a hog in the wheel of "our developing democracy."
The governors, which also said that they are hopeful that the Supreme Court will do justice to the case, had added that the judgment is nothing but "wrong signals to our teeming youths and laying a faulty moral foundation for generations of Nigerians yet unborn."
Commending the governors yesterday for standing behind the party and Atiku, the PDP Youths, in a statement by its National Chairman, James Efe Akpofure said that it was obvious that the governors were on the side of the people.
"For this singular action, the PDP governors have shown that they are behind the party and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
"The governors have also demonstrated their loyalty to the party, that all avenues available must be exhausted before congratulatory messages can be sent to the winner at the Supreme Court.
"The governors have also demonstrated their resolve that there is hope that the Supreme Court will look into all the loopholes neglected by the Tribunal and do the right," the youths said.
The PDP Youths Vanguard therefore, calls on the party stakeholders to take a cue from the governors and give maximum support to the party and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
