PDP to Buhari: Leave legacy of one man, one vote to deepen democracy


The Lagos State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adedeji Doherty, on Tuesday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to leave a legacy of one man, one vote to deepen democratic experience in the country.
Addressing a news conference on the recent Supreme Court judgments on the 2019 governorship elections, Doherty stressed the need for the present administration to leave a legacy of one man, one vote before exiting power in 2023.
According to the PDP chairman, leaving the legacy of a good voting pattern in the country will deepen the nation’s democratic experience.
He advised Nigerians, especially his party members, to be law abiding in their reactions to the recent judgments by the apex court.
Doherty said: “We call on the Nigerian people to be law abiding.
“Let us pray that our leaders will see reasons to pass the Electoral Amendment Bill into Law.”
The PDP leader said it was common knowledge that the Supreme Court could not change the judgment it had passed.
He said: “We have come to the Lagos State Judiciary to present to the Chief Judge our petition against the Supreme Court Judgment.”
Doherty enjoined Muslims, Christians and traditional worshipers to set aside few days to pray for the peace and progress of the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the party faithful held a peaceful protest which began from the PDP Secretariat and ended at the Lagos State High Court, Ikeja.
