he Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole of attempt to politicise the Supreme Court judgement on the Imo State governorship election.
In a statement yesterday by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said that Oshiomhole has resorted to hauling insults on Nigerians, including PDP leaders, in his desperate bid to divert public attention from the alleged perversion of justice by the Supreme Court in favour of APC.
“Oshiomohole’s desperation to blur public agitation against the injustice further confirms that APC is in league with Justice Mohammed Tanko-led Supreme Court in perverting justice in the Imo governorship election judgement, as well as the heinous plots to use the court to take over other PDP-controlled states of Bauchi, Sokoto, Adamawa and Benue,” the party said.
According to him: “Oshiomhole has suddenly become the mouth piece of the Supreme Court,” adding that information available revealed that “certain Justices of the Court have been blaming APC leaders and the presidency for compromising and dragging them into the disgraceful plots.”
The party however, told the APC National Chairman that Nigerians and lovers of democracy all over the world would not relent in mobilizing the citizens in pursuit of an end to many injustices that pervade the nation.
“Of course, Oshiomhole and Justice Tanko Mohammed are reminded that, as stated by Thomas Jefferson, ‘when injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.’
“Apparently, Oshiomhole thinks that by championing injustice and promoting impunity in his party and its government, he will escape his journey to jail for allegedly looting of billions of naira belonging to Edo state, when he was governor,” PDP stated.
“The PDP will also not stop our demand for the review and reversal of the injustice done in the Imo State governorship election by the Supreme Court,” the party added.
