Governors on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have commended the Supreme Court for upholding the elections of all its governors, describing the Apex court as the ‘saviour of democracy’ in Nigeria.

This disclosure was contained in a statement issued and signed by Osaro Onaiwu, coordinator of the Forum, on Wednesday, February 3, after the court upheld the elections of Governors Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom and Okey Ikpeazu of Abia State.

The PDP Governors’ Forum said the judgements have reinforced the belief that the judiciary remains the hope of the common man.

The statement read: “what the apex court has done was to save the country from being balkanised by the APC in its avowal to undermine the integrity of the courts and jettison the sacredness of the ballot box”.

Mr. Onaiwu also maintained that the PDP would continue to work to strengthen the country’s legal process as well as democratic norms.

The Apex Court had yesterday upheld the election of Mr Udom and Dr Ikpeazu as the governors of Akwa Ibom and of Abia States respectively.

The court in two separate judgments set aside the judgments of two divisions of the Court of Appeal which had both nullified the election of the two governors.
