PDP calls for postponement of Ondo election

19 November 2016, 16:02

Akure - The People's Democratic Party has called for the postponement of the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State, Premium Times reports.

The party based its call on the non-conclusion of a court case that was to determine its rightful candidate for the election.

A Court of Appeal panel led by Justice Ibrahim Salauwa on Friday adjourned ruling indefinitely in an appeal filed by Eyitayo Jegede who seeks to be recognised as the PDP governorship candidate.

Jegede seeks to upturn a Federal High Court ruling that effectively declared Jimoh Ibrahim as the rightful PDP candidate.

While Jegede and incumbent governor Olusgeun Mimiko are members of the Ahmed Makarfi-led PDP, Ibrahim is of the Ali Sheriff-led faction.

Justice Salauwa had said that the decision to adjourn was taken in the face of a petition written against the panel to the Chief Justice of the Federation and Chairman of the National Judicial Council alleging acts of corruption, bias and breach of oaths of office amongst others.
