Justice  Okon Abang of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had on Friday ordered INEC to accept Ibrahim as the candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo State, reports The Nation

Abang ruled that “INEC should accept for the conduct of Ondo state governorship election only the nomination of Ibrahim for Ondo PDP.

He said if there is another court order that is superior to the earlier one, the commission will also reverse its action.
