Appeal Court sitting in Abuja has declared Mr. Eyitayo Jegede as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) governorship candidate for this Saturday’s Ondo State governorship election.
By this judgement, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim ceases to be PDP’s candidate.
Justice Abang had on October 14, ruled in favour of the Jimoh Ibrahim to be the PDP governorship candidate for the Ondo State gubernatorial election.
The preciding judge, Justice Salauwa sets aside Justice Abang’s ruling that gave INEC order to publish Jimoh’s name.
The Appeal Court accused Justice Abang of displaying “violent attitudinal disposition” to the rule of law.
