The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has appraised recent pronouncements of election petitions tribunals, alleging that the tribunals are working in favour of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC. This was as it accused the federal government of victimization.

National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, who disclosed this to newsmen at the end of the emergency meeting of the party?s national caucus which ended late on Thursday, revealed that critical issues concerning the country?s democracy were discussed at the meeting.

According to him, ?The national caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) carefully reviewed the political developments in the nation?s polity.


?There is serious cause for concern in the nation?s political environment, especially as it concerns democracy.

?The PDP and Nigerians wonder why it was necessary to interfere with the composition of the Rivers state governorship tribunal and to harass the state resident electoral commissioner severally, to the extent that the tribunal itself was able to deliver a judgment within 24 hours in a case that had nearly 100 witnesses, 1000 pieces of documentary evidence and nine final written agreement, which each had not less than 40 pages.

?The outcome of the decision in view of the rather interesting history of the case indicates that the judiciary like the Nigerian people and the PDP have become victims of the APC-led federal government.

Metuh went on to commend the PDP senators who staged a walk-out in protest of the ministerial confirmation of the immediate past governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi, despite the allegations of corruption against him.
