#EkitiDecides2018: PDP Goes Spiritual, Says Almighty’s Test Is Coming
Ekiti election may have ended with all its issues and alleged voter's inducements, but the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is asking Nigerians who believe in democracy not to be deterred by the outcome of Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti.
Dr. Kayode Fayemi won the election, defeating the candidate of the PDP, Professor Olusola, Eleka, but the National Chairman of the party, Mr Uche Secondus, on Sunday in Abuja, said the result of the poll would not stand the test of the Almighty.
His comments on the election was contained in a statement by his spokesman, Mr Ike Abonyi.
It is just a confirmation of the earlier declaration by the party that it would go to court to challenge the victory of the APC.
The party also believes there is a spiritual battle going on to rescue Nigeria.
Mr Secondus said that what was needed was patience.
"Justice has the stamina to go all the way to the destination while injustice cannot,” he said.
He appreciated Nigerians, particularly those who stood by the party during the struggle for Ekiti and assured them that justice would prevail.
According to him, the PDP knew from inception that rescuing Nigeria from anti-democratic forces was not going to be easy.
The PDP, he said, remained emboldened by the fact that Nigerians had resolved to stop the circle of bad governance, violence and bloodletting in the country.
“What I want to assure Nigerians and other lovers of democracy and rule of law is that PDP and its partners are undaunted and will not look back until this country is rescued.’’
Secondus also appreciated the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) for its support and determination to rescue Nigeria.
“The signs are there both in the spirit and physical world that God has decided to rescue Nigeria and the journey has since begun; what we need is patience and steadfastness,’’ he said.

Secondus added that what was clear was that “those on the side of the people laugh last, and indeed, they laugh best”.
He advised all PDP supporters, particularly in Ekiti, to eschew violence and wait for the rule of law, which according to him, will surely prevail.
