party.


Read the full statement below:
"I congratulate my political party, the
Peoples Democratic Party, on the
successful resolution of its leadership
crisis by the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
"I believe in our jurists. We may have
issues with some individuals but the
Nigerian judiciary deserves our respect
and commendation. They have served
this country well.
"Today's verdict is a judgment where
there are no winners or losers. It is a
verdict that will bring our party
together. We should all thank the
Supreme Court of the Federal Republic of
Nigeria.
"As I congratulate the Ahmed Makarfi
led Caretaker Committee, I want to
strongly urge them not to see this as a
victory of a section of the party, but as a
moral victory of constitutionality over
arbitrariness.
"Thus, they must take inspiration from
General Yakubu Gowon and declare a 'no
victor and no vanquished policy'.
"As a senior member of the party, I
hereby call on all those who left the
party because of its leadership issues to
return to their natural home and build
the PDP.
"The PDP is an inclusive vehicle not an
exclusive one. We see Nigerians as
human beings deserving of the rule of
law, separation of powers and a free
market economy that provides a level
playing ground for all.
"The party that gave Nigeria the largest
economy in Africa is a party whose heart
is large enough to find a place for all
Nigerians.
"I thank God for this day of Justice and
may God bless Nigeria. GEJ."
PAY ATTENTION , LOADEDCITY reported that
Nigeria's apex court today, Wednesday,

leader of Nigeria’s largest opposition
party.
