The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has claimed that it was
cheated by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, during the 2023
The party stated this on Monday while reacting to the
verdict of the Nasarawa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which
sacked the incumbent governor.
Recall that the tribunal nullified the
victory of Governor Abdullahi Sule in the March 18 polls.
The three-man panel led by Justice Ezekiel Ajayi, which
delivered the judgment via zoom, declared Emmanuel Ombudagu of the PDP winner
of the election.
Reacting, PDP in a post on its official X handle, alleged
that the party’s mandates were stolen at both the federal and state levels
during the general elections.
The party congratulated Ombudagu, saying his victory was the
will of the people of Nasarawa State.
The post reads, “The Governorship Candidate of our great
party, the @OfficialPDPNig, @davidombugadu23, has been declared as the winner
of the March 18, 2023 Gubernatorial Election in Nasarawa State by the Election
“This victory and the jubilations that greeted the
declaration by the people of the state is a testament that the PDP and its
Candidate were cheated by the electoral umpire and the ruling @OfficialAPCNg.
“The PDP will continue to reclaim its stolen mandates at the
national level and in all the states of the federation. Once again,
congratulations to @davidombugadu23 and the entire PDP family nationwide”.
