The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed shock at the statement credited to President Muhammadu Buhari, where he reportedly said the judiciary is his 'major headache'.

In a statement signed by the party's Acting National Chairman, Uche Secondus, it alleged that the Presidency plots to "blackmail and stampede the judiciary to deliver judgments against the PDP in various pending cases involving our party and some of our leaders in the courts."

The statement urged "the judiciary to ensure that it adequately guards its flanks from all external influences, we also caution the executive to focus on governance, while respecting the constitutionally guaranteed principle of separation of powers by allowing the judiciary and the legislature indeed, all statutory arms of government to freely operate within the bounds provided by our laws."
