Ondo guber: Ibrahim heads to Supreme Court



Ondo guber: Ibrahim heads to Supreme Court

The ousted controversial Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the November 26 Ondo State governorship election, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim has vowed to challenge his sack at the Supreme Court.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Wednesday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to remove Ibrahim’s name as the candidate of the PDP and replace it with that of Mr. Eyitayo Jegede.

But reacting shortly after the ruling, Ibrahim said in a statement that he was sure of getting justice at the Supreme Court. He vowed not to allow Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State to succeed himself by planting Mr. Jegede (SAN) as his successor.

“I have read the decision of the Court of Appeal delivered today (Wednesday). We have nothing to lose, as the Supreme Court sits on the same case tomorrow. We shall get justice at the Supreme Court and if PDP wins Saturday election, we shall have our four-year mandate to rule Ondo State.

“Let me advise you not to abuse anyone or fight over this one day ruling. Mimiko will not succeed himself with Jegede. This is too sure. We continue with our work and remain in our great party, PDP. I love the great people of Ondo state and I thank you all for continuous support,” the statement read.
