It said the party is desperate for power even in the face of defeat both at the polls and in the courts.

The party's state secretary, Godspower Keku, who said this in a statement, commended  the judiciary for being “critical defender” of democracy in the 4th republic.

He said it has on major occasions risen to restore confidence in the people and the fabric of the nation through various landmark judicial pronouncements.

The said the Appeal Court judgement which upheld the earlier decision of the state election petitions tribunal affirming the election of Governor Seriake Dickson, was in furtherance of judicial development.

“It has been a major step in our nation’s judicial system, reaffirming the sanctity of the judiciary as the last hope of the common man.

"The judgement of the Appeal Court reinforces our faith in democracy and the crucial role the judiciary plays in safeguarding the wishes of the people.

Probating and reprobating at the same time as Sylva did was nothing short of desperation for power”, Kenku said.

He lauded Dickson's efforts at developing the state, pointing out what he referred to as the “divisive and hate propaganda of the opposition party” to blackmail the governor in the state.

The PDP called on President Muhammadu Buhari to check the excesses of some politicians perpetrating acts of criminality under the umbrella of the party at the centre.
