Benue State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the judgement passed by the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal that dismissed the party’s petition and that of its Governorship Candidate, Engr. Titus Tyoapine Uba, challenging the declaration of Hyacinth Alia as Governor of the state at the 2023 elections.
The party has directed its lawyers to appeal the judgement at the Court of Appeal, Abuja within the timeframe specified by law, a statement by Bemgba Iortyom, the Benue State PDP Publicity Secretary, said.
It said “ater a review of the judgement with its team of lawyers, PDP believes that it does not meet the requirements of substantive justice and is not in alignment with extant electoral laws, guidelines and regulations.”
“Our great party urged its teeming supporters across the state to be calm and of good cheer in the faith that though the walk to justice may be long, the goal of reclaiming the Governorship mandate will surely be achieved in the end.”
