The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it would not seek legal redress to upturn the outcome of the Saturday, March 28, 2015 presidential election so as to allow president-elect General Muhammadu Buhari to focus on the business of governance when he assumes office.

Making the position of the party known was PDP’s National Secretary Olisa Metuh who said the PDP would support him in a bid to sustain the country’s democracy.

Speaking at a press conference held in Abuja on Tuesday, April 7, 2015, Metuh said: “We will not distract Buhari; we will help him to salvage democracy. We will offer APC alternative programme. We will be the best opposition, we do hope that the opposition will appreciate democracy.

“PDP recognises that there were irregularities in the presidential election, but we decided that promoting unity is paramount to us. It is the wish of this party that the president-elect will not be disturbed. We will not do anything that will disturb him and we will not condole harassment of our members.
“We are convinced that the APC lacks what it takes to sustain our democracy. The PDP is not leaving any stone unturned to ensure that it returned to power in the next four years to save the nation’s democracy and re-channel our vision of a greater Nigeria.
“As we address you today, our nation and its citizens are facing a serous threat.
“We are on the verge of a quick slide into dictatorship and the personal freedom we all enjoy today is about to be obliterated. The PDP has invited you today to address a matter of serious national importance, a grievous development and worrisome trend which is not only inimical to the stability of our nation but also the collective wellbeing of all citizens.”
