The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop denigrating the judiciary by suggesting that tribunal judges handling the various election petitions can be influenced, saying the APC-led federal government will not micromanage the judiciary.
APC said in a statement issued in Lagos by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, that PDP is throwing wild allegations against the tribunals in Rivers and other states because the party knows it stole the votes in those states.
“The affected states are the cashcows of the PDP, hence the party is so jittery about losing the states, which they know they did not win in the first instance,” Lai Mohammed said.
“We have confidence in the ability of the tribunals to carry out their duties diligently and without fear or favour. We implore the PDP to be charitable enough to repose the same confidence in the tribunals,” he added.
