Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, says the party is leaving the supreme court’s judgement on Atiku Abubakar’s appeal to “God the ultimate judge”.

Secondus was reacting to the defeat suffered by Atiku, presidential candidate of the PDP, at the apex court.

The court dismissed the appeal filed by Atiku against President Muhammadu Buhari’s election victory.

Tanko Mohammed, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), said after examining the arguments from the parties to the case, the panel concluded that the appeal lacks merit.

In a statement issued by Ike Abonyi, his media aide, Secondus said the judgement does not change the fact that Nigerians rejected the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the poll.

The national chairman thanked Nigerians for “their commitment and support to the party and to democracy”.

He added that Nigerians’ commitment to democracy and its tenets “despite inhibiting factors is worthy of emulation and highly commendable”.

“We thank you for your support for PDP, for your commitment to democracy. Nigerians know that you voted PDP, even APC knows that you rejected them on February 23, 2019, the international community knows you voted for PDP, if Supreme Court of seven justices says otherwise, leave it to God the ultimate Judge,” he said.

He asked citizens to remain steadfast in their prayers to God, adding that the country is in “such an untidy state that only God can bail her out”.
