The PDP Governors’ Forum has publicly supported the judiciary, even as two of their colleagues were recently dismissed by appellate courts.
Speaking to the media in Abuja on Thursday, November 23, the Governors referred to the appellate court rulings that led to the dismissal of two members as “temporary setbacks.”
They also expressed optimism that the Supreme Court would address the dismissals of Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State and Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State.
In a communique issued at the end of their deliberations, the opposition governors said
“The meeting reviewed the recent judgments of the Court of Appeal concerning Governors of various States and noted the mixed outcomes.
“As a Forum, we once again re-state our overall confidence in the judiciary to do justice. We believe that the Supreme Court will do justice in the cases where we recorded temporary setbacks like Zamfara and Plateau States.”
During the off-season elections in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Imo states, the PDP governors express their backing for INEC’s decision to probe allegations of pre-filled result sheets before the commencement of elections in certain locations. This is aimed at ensuring the public’s confidence in the electoral process.
