The Muhammad Imam campaign organisation has said that, the court judgement on Wednesday against its candidate will not deter their efforts towards rescuing Borno as their candidate remains the standard bearer of the PDP gubernatorial election in the state.
A statement from the organisation, which is made available to journalists in Maiduguri reads: “Following the outcome of the judgement by the Federal High Court in Abuja, we call on our supporters to remain calm and steadfast in our struggle to rescue Borno.
“The Federal High Court in Abuja is the court of first instance and hence we have the right to appeal and our lawyers have already appealed against that decision. We have also applied for a stay of execution pending the outcome of the appeal which by law is our right. Muhammad Imam still remains the valid candidate of our party, PDP”.
The campaign organization also called on their supporters not to relent in their efforts at mobilizing people and ensuring the ultimate victory of the party at all levels.
