The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State has officially reacted to the sack of its governorship candidate, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, saying it will appeal the court judgment.
Recall that an Abuja High Court on Thursday nullified Oborevwori’s candidacy for 2023, citing discrepancies in his documents.
In a statement issued by PDP’s State Publicity Secretary, Dr Ifeanyi Osuoza, and made available to journalists in Asaba, the party stated that it had received the judgement.
Osuoza further stated that the party would study the ruling and explore grounds for appeal.
The statement partly read: “The party has received the judgement of an Abuja Federal High Court against our Gubernatorial Candidate, Sheriff Oborevwori, on the grounds of discrepancies in his documents.
“We have already engaged our team of legal experts to critically study the ruling and explore grounds on which we can confidently approach the Court of Appeal.
“We want to, therefore, urge our teeming supporters and party faithful to remain calm, unperturbed and law-abiding.
“We assure them that we are quite confident in our conviction that justice will be done and we will get a judgement at the Appellate Court.
“There is no cause for alarm.”
