#ONDO GUBER: Appeal court returns Jegede as PDP candidate
Mr Eyitayo Jegede has been declared as the rightful candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Ondo State governorship election for Saturday.
Justice Saulawa of the Appeal Court on Wednesday nullified the proceedings of October 14 in which Justice Okon Abang ruled in favour of Jimoh Ibrahim.
A Federal High Court presided over by Justice Abang, had on June 29 affirmed Sheriff as chairman of the PDP. On the basis of that judgement, Abang declared Ibrahim PDP’s governorship candidate of Ondo State and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to drop Jegede, the Ahmed Makarfi-led PDP candidate’s name and replace it with Ibrahim.

Nigeria is a crazy country. How can court nullify Ibrahim when it’s just few days to election? What can jegede do to storm all the local government in ondo state to canvass support ? What is the hope of PDP in this election? I pity the conditions and rationale why political parties are founded in Nigeria. They are bereaved of ideology.
