Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party  have insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari will lose the victory  he recently won at the Presidential Election Tribunal.

The PDP Governors’ Forum stated this while backing the bid of the party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to challenge the verdict of the tribunal which dismissed their petition last week.

A statement issued on Sunday and signed by its chairman and Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson said if the ruling of the tribunal was not challenged, it may become a clog in the wheel of the country’s democracy and send wrong signals to future generations of Nigerians.

The statement read: “After painstakingly and prudently understudying the line after line tenets of the judgment, several holes were picked and countless anomalies identified by us.

“We would be doing a greater disservice and moral injustice to our party, our democracy and Nigerians in general if we turn blind eyes, swallow such bile and applaud that rape of justice.

“The judgment, to say the least has further painted our judiciary with darker colours, only this time around with a never-before-seen blemished coat of tar.

“However, we are hopeful that the Supreme Court will re-write that history by ensuring that such stains and tar are removed from our judicial archives.

“The apex court should know that its integrity is at stake and in order to avoid it being shredded to particles, must employ all known technicalities to save our nation and the future of Nigerians yet unborn from a development that may further make us a perpetual laughing stock among the comity of nations.

“And Nigerians are very hopeful that these wrongs will be righted. Without any iota of trepidation, it is most paramount for us to once more restate and reconfirm our undiluted loyalty, deserving support and maximum commitment to our great party and the Atiku-Obi presidential ticket.

“This is our stand, now and in the future. Posterity would judge us harshly if we did otherwise.”
