PDP seeks international censure of poll anomalies
Oseloka hails judiciary over verdicts on Osun, Zamfara
Edo State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Dan Orbih, has called on the international community to lend their voices in condemnation of the recent general elections flaws.
He alleged that many lives were lost because some persons wanted to remain in power at all costs.
Orbih made the call yesterday in Benin City when he received Mr. Shashank Iyer, Political Officer, United States Consulate General, Lagos, as part of the mission’s campaign against human trafficking.
The party chairman also called for sanction on Nigeria for misconducts in the last general elections, which he described as “the most perverted, fraudulent and unreliable.”
He insisted that such action would discourage other African politicians from toeing same path.
“I believe that the international community should lend their voices to condemn what happened in Nigeria during the 2019 election, which left so many people dead because some people want to remain in office at all costs.
“Sanctions, if necessary, must be administered to discourage people from going in this direction. I will be speaking the minds of most Nigerians if I say that democracy is the way, the only option and most civilised way to go. Dictatorship anywhere in the world is evil,” he said.
In another vein, former governorship candidate of PDP, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, has hailed the judiciary, saying that Nigerians deserve the best from the body, especially in the post-election cases.
Reacting to the recent rulings in the Osun and Zamfara states matter, Obaze said the citizenry expect more and better judgements from the presidential, governorship, assembly elections across the country.
While the election tribunal sacked the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in Osun, a court nullified the party’s governorship primary in Zamfara.
The chairman of Anambra PDP Campaign Council said yesterday in Awka that the judicial rulings on Osun and Zamfara represent positive redemptive values.
Also, Anambra PDP has rated its performance in the 2019 elections high.
The party’s publicity secretary in the state, Nnamdi Nwangwu, attributed the performance to the quality of leadership offered by the Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu-led executive committee.
He pointed out that PDP under the present dispensation was able to produce two senators and 60 per cent of House of Representatives members.
Nwangwu was optimistic that Anambra PDP would soon produce the nation’s vice president.
