APC accuses PDP of intimidating supreme court judges on Rivers governorship election

Earlier, the PDP accused Rotimi Amaechi, and other top APC members of planning to put pressure on the supreme court to reverse a judgement disqualifying the APC from the state’s governorship election.

The All Progressives Congress () have accused the Peoples Democratic Party () of intimidating supreme court judges into doing their bidding concerning the governorship poll in .

Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC spokesman, made this claim in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday.

Earlier, the PDP accused Rotimi Amaechi, and other top APC members of planning to put pressure on the supreme court to reverse a judgement disqualifying the APC from the state’s governorship election.

However, Issa-Onilu refuted the claims of the PDP saying they are seeking the supreme court to do their bidding on the matter.

The statement reads, “We are however well aware of the PDP’s intent to hoodwink and deceive the public; and most importantly, intimidate and blackmail our eminent Supreme Court justices into doing their bidding in respect of the matter of the purported exclusion of Rivers State APC candidates from the last elections, before the apex court.

“Again, for the purpose of clarity, it needs restating that the Supreme Court has not made any pronouncement on the purported exclusion of APC candidates from the just concluded Governorship, National Assembly and State House Assembly elections in Rivers State.

“Hence, the cheap attempt by the PDP to ambush the Supreme Court with their cock and bull conspiracies should be seen for what it is, hogwash!

“We urge Nigerians to completely ignore the evil machinations of the PDP as contained in their ludicrous and false statement on the matter of the purported exclusion of Rivers APC candidates in the last elections before the Supreme Court.”

He added that while the APC would allow the law take its course regarding the matter, the PDP should also do the same, “rather than overheat the polity with their illogical and false claims.”
