‘PDP Sure of Victory at Election Tribunal in River

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Cross River State, Mr. John Okon, has expressed confidence that the candidates of the party would emerge victorious at the Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Calabar.

Okon spoke on Tuesday in Calabar during an interactive session with journalists.
He said candidates of the PDP that won the 2015 National Assembly and House of Assembly elections carried out massive campaigns to sell their manifestoes, adding that they were duly elected.
Okon said, “Cross River is traditionally a PDP state. We worked tirelessly during the elections and I don’t think anybody should say that the election was rigged.

“We are aware of the petitions at the tribunal. It is normal in every society. But the PDP in Cross River is confident that none of its candidates would lose at the tribunal or have his or her election nullified.
“I am happy that we have cleared the petitions of the All Progressives Congress and Labour Party against Governor Ben Ayade and I am confident that we will prevail.

“As the chairman of the party in the state, I know we performed well in the election and our lawyers are there to present the facts at the tribunal.
“Those who took our candidates to court are living on hope. We are not entertaining any fear whether there is a forensic auditing or whatever. Election results from all the 18 local government areas in the state showed that the PDP won massively at the polls and we have the evidences.”
