Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have expressed optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari will be sacked by the Supreme Court.
The PDP Governors’ Forum stated this while backing the bid of the party to challenge the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, which dismissed the petition of the party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The forum’s statement was signed and made available to newsmen on Sunday by its chairman and Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson.
The governors pointed out that if the ruling of the tribunal was not challenged, it may become a clog in the wheel of the country’s democracy, as it will allegedly send wrong signals to future generations of Nigerians.
The statement added, “After painstakingly and prudently understudying the line after line tenets of the judgment, several holes were picked and countless anomalies identified by us.
“We would be doing a greater disservice and moral injustice to our party, our democracy and Nigerians in general if we turn blind eyes, swallow such bile and applaud that rape of justice.
