PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS: FORMER PDP NATIONAL VICE PRESIDENT SAYS, NO ONE IS THE WINNER

0



Olabode George, Former National Vice President of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), said yesterday that it would be a pity if the Presidential Election Complaints Court (PEPC) declared someone the winner of the presidential election on February 25.


His comments follow news that the court will issue a ruling tomorrow on moves against  Bola Ahmed Tinubu's claim to be the winner of the vote.



The court upheld the judgment against the petitioner:

The PDP and its flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar, and Peter Obi, of the Labor Party, ended their case in June, after summoning 40  of the 150 witnesses listed earlier in the petition.They challenged the victory of Tinubu and his party, the Progressive Congress(APC).



The Court also reserved its ruling on proposals by the Allied People's Movement (APM) against declaring Tinubu the victor. Speaking to reporters at his office in Ikoyi, George called the election flawed, saying the whole process should be called off and a new exercise should be held. 


He says:

“If the judiciary declares someone president, given the chaotic procedure we went through in the presidential election in February, it would be a disgrace to this country.

 “The judiciary should never have gone down this path. The procedure is wrong, let's go back and redo the election. If it's a million times then let's go back and vote. Peace now reigns in Kenya.The Supreme Court ordered them to hold the election again.

 
“If the PEPC declares someone a winner, then democracy in Nigeria will be redefined as 'the government of the judiciary, for the judiciary and by the judiciary'. Is that democracy? It is not done this way."



However, George expressed optimism that the PDP will win, adding that whatever the outcome tomorrow, the case will go to the Supreme Court. 



Furthermore, expressing displeasure with  former Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike's decision to join the Tinubu government, George said:

“Wike can be an exceptionally good man but he has to act gently. It's too early to jump ship. Democrats hope to win. There's nothing wrong with working for the opposition to achieve a government of national unity. 


But first you must complete the voting process and the election process will not be complete until we reach the Supreme Court.”
