Ibrahim is the factional candidate of the PDP while Oke is the candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD)
News 24 recalls that a Federal High Court had ordered INEC to recognize Ibrahim as the PDP candidate in the Ondo election.
Ibrahim had on Sunday accused an INEC official of demanding $1 million bribe from him before his name can be accepted
Oke, who defected to the Alliance for Democracy (AD) after the controversial APC primary election also suffers similar fate as Ibrahim.
On the list, Akin Enoch Zerubabel Olowookere and his 72-year old running mate, Yahaya Ipinloju were listed.
