Bayelsa: PDP believes in rule of law – Secondus


The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Uche Secondus, on Friday, said the party believes in the rule of law, adding that there was no point to protest a judgment which was in agreement with the rule of law.

Secondus’ comments came shortly after the Independent National Electoral Commission issued a Certificate of Return to PDP candidate and governor-elect in Bayelsa State, Douye Diri.

Secondus urged Diri and his deputy governor-elect, Lawrence Ewrudjakpo, to immediately go for reconciliation in the state.

He said, “This is the time to establish the truth and reconciliation committee for the benefit and genuine reconciliation of all Bayelsans.

“So, we urge the new governor-elect and deputy governor-elect to quickly go to work; embrace everyone regardless of their lineages or parties, because this is what PDP represents.

“We believe in the rule of law and our matters are very clear. If it is on point with the rule of law, no argument, no protest; if it is not on point with the rule of law, we will ask questions.

“We do not just makeup protests or argue or issue statements on ordinary grounds. On this matter in Bayelsa State, it was on point with the rule of law and the rule of law has taken its place.”
