PDP Accuses APC Of Alleged Plot To Compromise Niger State Tribunal

In an effort to regain their alleged stolen mandate, the Niger State chapter of the Peoples Democratic
Party, on Monday raised an alarm that the All Progressives Congress is planning to compromise the state’s governorship election tribunal.

In a statement that was released by the Director of Communications, Umar Nasko Governorship Campaign Organisation, Yahaya Mohammed Usman, the party said,

“We know for a fact that Niger State APC has made approaches through several fronts, including enrolling past judicial officers to link up to the panel members.”

“While we in the PDP have tremendous confidence in the judiciary, we have no reason yet to suspect that he members have compromised in anyway or form. We have absolute confidence they will not.”

“The suspicion of the PDP had been further reinforced by persistent claims by some leaders of the APC, who have continued to insist that nothing will come out of the tribunal, we have power and will do as we want.”

He further stated that the party, “will continue to build a water-tight case that will ensure that our stolen mandate is recovered and given back to the rightful owner.”

“We are very much aware of all the electoral malpractices and electoral frauds perpetrated during the sham governorship election; at the commencement of sitting, all the facts will be tendered before their lordships.”

He called on the “tribunal members to remain resolute and ensure justice is served so as to write their names in gold.”
