What PDP Might Likely Do Regarding The Election
With the party failing to accept the result of the election, it’s expected that it would most likely end up at a tribunal and go all the way to the Supreme Court where the president recently suspended its head, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.
