The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday, expressed concerns over Supreme Court’s decision to reserve judgment on the Zamfara state governorship election matter in which the All Progressives Congress (APC), had prayed the apex court to review iown judgment.
The PDP said it was concerned that the surprising decision to reserve judgment was not in tandem with the established practice of the apex court, which was reaffirmed in its judgments on the Bayelsa and Imo state governorship elections, where it dismissed the applications for review on the ground that it lacked jurisdiction to review its own judgment.
The Party alerted Nigerians to the alleged plot by the APC to once again manipulate the judicial process and secure judgment through the back door.
The Party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, said Nigerians would recall that the Supreme Court had consistently decided on the finality of judgments reached at the court.
He said; “As such, all issues bothering on review were never reserved for judgment because of its belief in the infallibility of its own judgment.
“The PDP therefore urges the Supreme Court not to allow itself to be manipulated by the APC or its agents into a judicial summersault that is capable of causing serious constitutional and political crisis in our country.”
