Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party has commended the Supreme Court for not cowering before those intent on destroying its hallowed integrity with its upholding of the mandate of Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba state.
The governors in a statement signed by Mr. Osaro Onaiwu on Thursday in Abuja said the validation of Ishaku’s election did not come as a surprise because the people of Taraba wilfully and freely gave their mandate to the PDP.
“We want to commend the justice of the apex court for their courage and being true apostles of justice in affirming the election of our brother governor, Ishaku. It is unfortunate that some other political parties especially the APC have taken the incontinent road of questioning the decision of their Hon. Justices, insinuating compromise.
“Knowing that their Hon. Justices have come very far to reach the pinnacle of the legal profession, we are convinced that every judgment, even those that have not gone the way of our great party, the PDP, was carefully thought out and in consonance with the letter and spirit of the law.
“We would not join those who think it is their birth right to win all matters before the Supreme Court or any other court for that matter. We are confident that by this victory, Governor Ishaku is well-positioned to serve the people of Taraba state faithfully and with tangible results.
“Tarabans are urged to give him their support and continue to support the PDP,” Onaiwu said.
