PDP hails Fintiri on S’Court victory

PDP hails Fintiri on S’Court victory

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adawama State on the judgement of the Supreme Court which affirmed his victory at the March 18, 2023 Governorship election.

Debo Ologunagba, the national publicity secretary of the PDP, in a statement, said the judgement serves as an iron-cast stamp in validating the triumph of the expressed will of the people in resisting various attempts by undemocratic and anti-people forces to subvert the electoral process and illegally take over control of the state.

He noted that “The spur-of-the-moment celebration across Adamawa State and other states of the federation at the news of the Supreme Court judgement clearly shows that the verdict is in line with the expectation of Nigerians and particularly the people of Adamawa State in their quest to sustain transparent, development-driven and people-oriented leadership as epitomised in Governor Fintiri and the PDP.

The PDP, he said, was delighted by “Fintiri’s unprecedented life-changing legacy achievements in citizen empowerment, human capital and infrastructural development which have turned the state around.”

The party, therefore, restated its demand for the prosecution of Yunusa Ari, the suspended Adamawa State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), who was suspended for his alleged complicity in the plot to forcefully manipulate the outcome of the March 18, 2023 Governorship election in the state, ‘against the will of the people.’

“Our party appreciates and salutes the people of Adamawa State for their courage and resilience in standing with Governor Fintiri and the PDP in defending their mandate to the end.
