The Peoples Democratic Party in Benue State has expressed plans to reclaim its alleged governorship mandate at the Supreme Court.
The PDP in a statement issued by its spokesman Mr Bemgba Iortyom on Tuesday, claimed the last election was won by the candidate of the party, Engr Uba, noting that it would instruct its legal team to challenge the Appeal Court’s ruling at the Supreme Court.
The party further stressed that the alleged stolen mandate will be pursued with all legal means through the Apex Court.
Lortyom said, “It remains the contention of the party that, in line with extant electoral laws, regulations and guidelines, the governorship of the state at the last election was won by Engr. Uba was canvassed by his legal team at the Tribunal and they just decided to appeal.
“The party’s leadership will consult with the legal team on the best possible approach to the next step in the litigation process and urges its teeming members and supporters to maintain the faith that justice will surely be done to the petition by Engr. Titus Uba.
“PDP believes democracy is best served and the sanctity of the votes of the electorate is better preserved by the pursuit of the legal option where there occurs violation of the electoral process as was done by APC at the 2023 Governorship Election.”
