Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Delta says it hopes that the disqualification of its governorship candidate will be upturned on Appeal.
The party stated this in reaction to Thursday’s ruling by Justice Taiwo Obayomi Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which declared Sheriff Oborevwori as not qualified to be the party’s governorship flag bearer in the 2023 general elections.
A statement by the state Publicity Secretary of the party, Dr Ifeanyi Osuoza, titled “DELTA 2023: ABUJA FEDERAL HIGH COURT RULING, DELTA PDP CALLS FOR CALM” reads below:
“Delta State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has received the judgement of an Abuja Federal High Court, against our Gubernatorial Candidate for the 2023 general elections, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, on the grounds of discrepancies in his documents.
“We have already engaged our team of legal experts to critically study the ruling and explore grounds on which we can confidently approach the Court of Appeal.
“We want to therefore enjoin our teeming supporters and loyal party faithful to remain calm, unperturbed, and law-abiding, and assure them that we are quite confident in our conviction, that justice will be done and we will get judgement at the Appellate Court.”
