National Democratic People's Party (PDP) leader Uche Secondus said nobody would stop the party from denouncing the outcome of the 23 February presidential election.

Mr. Secondus said at a news conference in Abuja on Friday that the party believes that justice would be done in court.

"We will go to court. Nobody will stop us from going to court and bring out all the facts that both international observers and some people have not seen.

"We will dig them up in court, and I believe justice prevails in court.

"If we continue to suppress injustices and become sentimental, the country will continue to accumulate gunpowder that will one day explode.

"So much injustice has been done in this country, and if we let it happen and it accumulates more and more often, nobody knows what will happen.

"That's why we have chosen to be good citizens and law-abiding people who believe in the rule of law that we will go," said Secondus.

Mr. Secondus commented on the recent meeting of the party and its presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar with the National Peace Committee. The party was not conditional, as they were only invited to comment on their complaint.

"There was no condition. At first we should not talk to them because we decided to go to court, but because of the people involved we said ok, let's just talk.

"There was no condition. There was no requirement of any condition.

"We have made it clear that there is no room for peace if the injustices are not addressed. Only if you deal with injustice can you now go for peace, "he said.

Mr Secondus also spoke about the alleged militarization of the elections, especially in the South-South and South-East.

He said it was one of the governing party's strategies to deny PDP victory.

He added that development was also responsible for the alleged murder of innocent voters and for the suppression of voters who were either frightened or expelled by electoral offices.

He said that even the Independent Electoral Commission INEC, the electoral turnout in last Saturday's elections, dropped from 36 percent last year to 36 percent.

"While the military suppressed voters in the PDP stronghold areas in the south, some abracadabra took place in some northern states, particularly in the states of Kano, Yobe, Borno and Zamfara, where the numbers do not add up.

"In the states of Borno, Yobe and Zamfara, the confirmed report shows that violations did not apply when using smart card readers that were approved by the INEC rules."

He added, "The same applies to canceled votes, over 115,000 votes were voided in Nasarawa, Kogi 79,000 votes, plateau 30,000 votes, suggesting that this high number of votes was intended to increase profit margins in PDP strongholds suppress.

Mr Secondus called on PDP members and supporters across the country not to despair, but to remain steadfast and focused.

"As our presidential candidate is assured, in the end we will triumph because democracy has remained in this country and remains at the mercy of God.

"I also want to reiterate to our security agencies, especially the army, that they are not at war with some of their citizens and that they must try to fulfill their duties by keeping away from the electoral issues raised by the country's Supreme Court."

The highlight of the press conference is a minute of silence for Nigerians who lost their lives on election day and celebrate the outcome.
