Abeokuta - Leaders of Ogun State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) loyal to Senator Buruji Kashamu have dragged the Minister‎ of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, to court seeking stoppage of allocations due to local governments in the state, reports New Telegraph.

The PDP is praying the court to declare the proposed Local Government election in the state  null and void if it is held without the authentic and validly nominated candidates by the only recognised Exco in the state.

The leaders are asking the court to stop the allocations due to the local governments that will be constituted without the participation of the validly nominated candidates of the PDP.
