Following the verdict of the Election Petition Tribunal hearing the case challenging the illegal sponsorship of Governor Rotimi Akerdolu and his running-mate in the October 10 governorship election as instituted by Eyitayo Jegede and the PDP, The Party in a statement signed by it publicity secretary, Kennedy Peretei, indicated the interest of the party to explore the next available legal means to purse their case as the Election Tribunal ruled to have lack the jurisdiction to interpret the Constitution.

He said “It is important to stress that, in its wisdom, the Tribunal admitted that issues raised by the petitioners were sufficient for consideration but Constitutional, which the Tribunal is not in a position to do justice to. The interpretation of the Constitution is a role reserved exclusively for the highest Court in the land- the Supreme Court of Nigeria”.

He went further by saying “The Constitution of every country is the document that regulates actions and behavior of her citizens. Therefore, it is our belief that nobody can flagrantly trample on the 1999 Constitution (as Amended) and escape with the excuse that the Tribunal has no jurisdiction”. He stressed that the party is relying on this viable evidence of obvious rape of the constitution to advance her case up till the highest court in the land.
