The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Cross River State has vowed to proceed to appeal the judgment delivered yesterday by an Abuja High Court, in favour of Governor Ben Ayade.
The new one was contained in a statement on Friday morning and signed by its Chairman, Vena Ikem.
The major opposition party said proceeding to the Appeal Court would remain “a civilized struggle and an intellectual exploration of the limits and vastness of our jurisprudence in this untested territory.”
It vowed that it would not surrender until until it gets justice.
“We will be studying the judgment in its entirety with the certainty of appealing to the next Court of Law until justice is manifestly done.
“The judgment of yesterday by the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja is yet another successful exploration of the dept of legal jurisprudence in uncharted territory such as we have at hand. Let me assure you that this judgment is only a step in the overall picture envisaged by our lawyers when they took steps to explore this legal option which has the potential to take both the Judiciary and indeed our entire democracy to another level entirely.
“We will continue to support our lawyers as they lead us in this battle for the soul of our democracy and good governance of our people.”
He lauded party faithfuls for not allowing Ayade to sleep well “with our stolen mandate and will continue to keep them sleepless for the remainder of the tenure which they shamelessly flaunt at us who made it happen.”
