The Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) Ondo State Chapter and its Candidate Eyitayo Jegede, SAN,at the October 20, 2020 Governorship Elections, will appeal the judgement of the Ondo Governorship Elections Tribunal delivered virtually today.
It is important to stress that, in its wisdom, the Tribunal admitted that issues raised by the petitioners were sufficient for consideration but Constitutional, which the Tribunal is not in a position to do justice to. The interpretation of the Constitution is a role reserved exclusively for the highest Court in the land- the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
The Constitution of every country is the document that regulates actions and behavior of her citizens. Therefore, it is our belief that nobody can flagrantly trample on the 1999 Constitution (as Amended) and escape with the excuse that the Tribunal has no jurisdiction.
The PDP is convinced that, we have a strong case for which we shall be vindicated at the end of the day.
We wish to appeal to all our party faithfuls to be steadfast and remain calm in the present circumstance, as we are sure of victory in the long run.
