PDP blast Sagay over Supreme Court verdict
The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Sunday, lambasted the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof Itse Sagay over his comments on the recent Supreme Court judgements on state elections in Zamfara and River States.
Prof Sagay had, in a recent press interview, described the apex court’s judgments as “national tragedy” and “unimaginable injustice”.
In a statement by its national spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP flayed Sagay’s frontal attack on the justices of the apex court and the judiciary as a critical institution of government.
According to the main opposition party, the Presidency and the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) are desperately plotting to “cow, blackmail, intimidate and attempt to annex the judiciary, particularly, the Supreme Court”, ahead of the determination of PDP’s presidential election petition pending before the Court of Appeal.
