Abuja - An Appeal court sitting in Abuja has sacked Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) for Saturday’s governorship election.
The judge, Justice Saulawa ordered INEC to restore Eyitayo Jegede as the true candidate for the party.
The Appeal Court set aside a ruling of the Federal High Court by Justice Okon Abang which declared Ibrahim the candidate.
Appeal court agrees with Wole Olanipekun, lawyer to Jegede that it is a misnomer for Jimoh Ibrahim to have benefited from the Abang’s ruling as he was not a party to the suit.
