0

The Peoples Democratic Par­ty (PDP) has congratulated Presi­dent Goodluck Jonathan over Tuesday’s ruling by the Court of Appeal, which upheld his eligibil­ity to contest the 2015 Presidential election.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the court ruling represents a positive step towards Jonathan’s impend­ing, overwhelming victory at the polls, come March 28.

The party described the verdict as “victory for democracy and the rule of law, especially in protect­ing the inalienable rights of eligi­ble citizens to freely participate in the electoral process without any form of hindrance”.

The Party added that the devel­opment had helped to enrich the Judiciary and further aided the nation’s democratic evolution.

The PDP also applauded Jona­than for always remaining fo­cused and upholding democratic principles, which enable Nigeri­ans to operate in an environment that allows for full expression of fundamental rights.

Commending the Judiciary for its stabilising role in the polity, the PDP urged its members and supporters across the country to close ranks and stand on the plat­form of this judicial victory to intensify efforts for eventual elec­toral victory.
