The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it will appeal the judgement of the Federal High Court, presided over by Hon. Justice O.O Oguntoyinbo, which directed the Ogun State Executive of the Party to conduct a fresh primary to nominate candidates for the 2023 general elections
The PDP in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba said, “after a comprehensive review and extensive consultations with Party leaders and critical stakeholders particularly in Ogun State, the NWC has resolved to appeal the Judgment.”
In his judgment in Suit No. FHC/AB/CS/83/2022, Hon. Justice Oguntoyinbo ordered that fresh primary elections be conducted by the current Ogun State Executives of the 2nd Defendant (Peoples Democratic Party) for the nomination of candidates for elective positions i.e House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senatorial and Governorship elections within 14 days.
“Consequently, the NWC has directed the National Legal Adviser of the Party to commence all actions necessary to appeal the judgement.
“The PDP urges all candidates of our Party in Ogun State, all critical stakeholders, Party members and our teeming supporters to remain focused and not allow themselves to be distracted as the PDP rally Nigerians to Rescue, Rebuild and Redirect our nation from the misrule of the All Progressives Congress (APC).”
