Festus Keyamo, the minister of state for labor and employment, slammed the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday night with attempting to intimidate the judiciary ahead of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal hearing.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s win in the election of February 25 will be the subject of a hearing before the tribunal by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party.
Debo Ologunagba, the PDP’s national publicity secretary, claimed that the APC was attempting to sway the results of the panel’s hearing during a press conference in Abuja.
He continued by saying that some APC leaders are trying to influence the judges by offering substantial money inducements or organizing false accusations.
He said: “The PDP’s press conference today, making all sorts of allegations regarding an alleged plan by the APC to influence the outcome of the court’s proceedings in the Presidential Election Petitions over which hearings would begin tomorrow in Abuja is nothing but just hot air.
