The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to influence the decision of the Supreme Court on the reversal of the judgement on the Imo State Governorship election.
In a statement to newsmen, spokesperson of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the ruling party is making such moves despite the glaring mistakes in the controversial ruling.
The main opposition party stated that the grounds for the demands by the PDP and majority of Nigerians for the reversal of Imo state governorship election judgment are completely different from those of Bayelsa.
The PDP said: “It is, therefore, instructive to note that the various election matters before the Supreme Court were brought on clearly distinctive grounds and each should be treated on its merit before the law.
“The party said the only reason APC was pushing for a review of the Supreme Court’s valid and flawless judgment on the Bayelsa and Zamfara governorship elections was to cause confusion and blackmail the Supreme Court from treating the Imo case on merit.
“The PDP maintained that the grounds for the reversal of Imo judgment are unambiguously constitutional and completely distinct from APC’s attempt to blackmail the Supreme Court with their demands on the Bayelsa and Zamfara states governorship election.
“The party, therefore, urged the Supreme Court not to succumb to the threats and blackmail by APC to push it to restrain itself from looking at the merit of the Imo case; correcting the mistakes and reversing the flawed judgment.”
