Jimoh Ibrahim loses appeal at Supreme Court

24 November 2016, 13:06Tony Smart

Abuja - The Supreme Court in Abuja has struck out the interlocutory appeals filed by Jimoh Ibrahim, a factional candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against Eyitayo Jegede, another factional candidate.

A 5-man panel led by acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen struck out the interlocutory appeals after hearing them as insisted by Jimoh Ibrahim’s counsel Barrister Nwofor.

An Appeal court sitting in Abuja had on Tuesday sacked Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) for Saturday’s governorship election according to News24.

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.

Jimoh Ibrahim after the judgement said he is certain of getting justice at the Supreme Court saying the incumbent governor, Olusegun Mimiko paid for the judgment with the state treasury.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday declared Hon Eyitayo Jegede as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Ondo State governorship election in compliance with the Appeal Court order.
