Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The Court of Appeal in Ibadan has given reason why it reinstated Ladi Adebutu as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State.
The court also reinstated all other candidates of the PDP in Ogun by setting aside the judgment of an Abeokuta Federal High Court, which nullified all the primary elections conducted by the PDP.
Ruling on Monday, Justice Folasade Ojo said it is only the National Working Committee of the party that has the power to nominate and conduct a primary.
Sundiata Post recalls that Justice O. Oguntoyinbo had nullified the candidacy of Adebutu and others, following a suit filed by Segun Seriki and others.
