The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos state, has said that it will not relent in its efforts of taking all necessary measures to promote democracy.
In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Hakeem Amode, the party said that it was in the process of reviewing the judgment of the Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos, which dismissed the main issues raised by its governorship candidate, Dr. AbdulAzeez Olajide Adediran (Jandor) on the judgment given by the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
It will be recalled that the tribunal dismissed the petition of Jandor against Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State regarding the 2023 elections on September 25, 2023, while the Court of Appeal gave its judgement on Wednesday November 15, 2023 and dismissed issues raised by Jandor against the judgment of the Election Tribunal.
“While we refrain from providing a detailed analysis of the judgment at this juncture, we urge our dedicated supporters to maintain composure and abstain from any activities that may disrupt the harmony and order of our society.
“As a party, we are committed to undertaking a meticulous review of the judgment upon receipt of the Certified True Copy, and subsequently, we will issue precise directives to our legal team.
“There is no doubt that the tenets of democracy are at the core of our party’s values, and we remain dedicated to fostering an inclusive society that serves the interests of all its citizens,” he said.
The Publicity Secretary stressed that the party firmly believes that the appropriate avenue for addressing its concerns is through the legal process, adding that they were unwavering in their resolve to pursue the case “until it reaches a just and lawful resolution.”
He said: “we retain utmost confidence in the people of Lagos State, who rightfully deserve the very best. Our party is steadfast in its dedication to serving the populace to the fullest extent should the opportunity arise.”
