The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has described the reaction of President Muhammadu Buhari’s supporters to the interview granted by the Resident Electoral Commission in Akwa Ibom State, Mr. Mike Igini, confirming the existence of a central election results transmission server in the Independent National Electoral Commission as an admission of its guilt.
The party said this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Thursday.
The statement read in part: “The lesson for all in the latest episode is in the undying verity that no matter how long falsehood appears to thrive, the truth will always come to light and prevail at the end of the day.
“Instead of this pitiable resort to frenetic and chaotic play to the gallery, the PDP counsels President Buhari and his team to focus on facing the course of justice at the tribunal.
“The PDP further advises President Buhari and his team to curtail their desperation and respect the sanctity and integrity of the Court of Appeal by ending their externalisation of proceedings, which has been their calculated scheme to distract the court and derail the course of justice.
“Our party stands firmly with Nigerians in our determination to retrieve our stolen mandate in the court and no amount of shenanigans by the APC and the Buhari team will distract us.”
