The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP ), Delta state, will not join issue with any disgruntled party further on matters regarding the Supreme Court Verdict which validates its candidate for the 2023 election.

The position of PDP was made known in a press statement issued by the the state publicity secretary, Dr Ifeanyi Osuoza and made available to Fidelityreporters in Asaba.

According to the statement PDP has no reason to doubt the integrity of the apex court as court of final arbitration also sanctity of the entire procedure in the matter under consideration. It expresses implicit confidence on the judiciary as the ladt hope of the common man

The statement read in part, “The apex court and final institution for adjudication has spoken, and the parties involved have expressed their acceptance of the verdict of the final arbiter, that even the erstwhile aggrieved has since congratulated the other and conveyed his acceptance of the verdict in an open statement.”

Therefore, PDP will not consider vituperations and any uncouth statements from aggrieved minds as the final verdict did not go their way but can only sympathise with them and only ask such persons to put the past behind and join hands to work for the victory of PDO in coming election.

” Delta PDP is in full of sympathy for one Zik Gbemre over dashed hopes that has made him to become emotionally devastated, saddened, and depressed by the Supreme Court’s October 21, 2022 verdict that declared Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori as the authentic governorship candidate of the party for the 2023 elections.

In his concluding remarks, he said,”Delta PDP declares that no person in his sane mind will exhibit the type of shame in a sworn effort to disparage the institution of justice that the whole nation holds in high esteem.

“The judiciary is the arbiter in all matters brought before it. And it is to ensure thoroughness and give benefits of doubt in all cases that the courts have appellate segments and the Supreme Court being the final appellate court of justice with the ones involved in the fray, each exhausting the chances before them in seeking justice, and the final arbiter coming out with its verdict, good sense informs that everyone should abide by the judgment and move on.

“This is why the attitude of Zik Gbemre in seeking to disparage and cast aspersions on the integrity of the judiciary is unacceptable, depraved, immoral, and wicked. Delta PDP will not indulge this degenerate further by joining issues with him in the other matters of slanderous remarks on the personalities of PDP leaders in the State”
