The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Yobe state Governor Mala Mai Buni to resign his position as governor and Interim National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) following the pronouncement of the Supreme Court, which found the leadership of the party as “irresponsible and reckless,” for engaging in unsubstantiated allegations against the justices of the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court had lambasted the leadership of the APC over it comments on the trial of Imo North Senatorial bye-election.
PDP in a statement by it national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, Wednesday stated that “it is indeed appalling that the illegal Mai Buni leadership of the APC could, in their penchant for falsehood, go to the extent of falsely accusing the justices of the Supreme Court of holding a meeting with PDP leaders allegedly to subvert justice, in a case, in which the PDP is not even a party.
“The pronouncement of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land, has ultimately vindicated our stand that the APC is a party of irresponsible, reckless and dishonorable persons, who only thrive in fabrications, falsehood, lies, blackmail and character assassination,” the party added.
The statement by the party reads: “It is shameful that after mismanaging its nomination process in the Imo North Senatorial bye-election, the APC leadership is seeking to drag our party into its vicious attempt to use the instrument of blackmail and character assassination against the justices of the Supreme Court to settle their internal scores.
“Our party therefore demands that Alhaji Mai Buni should immediately resign as governor and APC chairperson, having been indicted by the Supreme Court, after which he should face the court to answer for his baseless and “irresponsible” allegation.”
