Appeal Court Sacks Jimoh Ibrahim, Names Jegede PDP Candidate

The Court of Appeal has sacked Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the PDP in Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State.

The court, therefore, ordered that Ibrahim be replaced with Eyitayo Jegede, who belongs to the Ahmed Makarfi faction of the party.

The Appeal Court set aside a ruling of the Federal High Court by Justice Okon Abang which declared Ibrahim the candidate.

All the objections filed by Ibrahim and his loyalists at the Appeal Court were also dismissed.
