Lagos East: Court dismisses PDP’s suit against Senator Abiru

A Federal in Lagos has dismissed the Peoples’ Democratic Party ()’s suit seeking to disqualify Adetokunbo Abiru of the (APC) from continuing to represent Lagos East Senatorial District.

Justice Chuka Obiozor, in a five-hour judgment, upheld the argument canvassed by Abiru’s , Mr Kemi Pinheiro, SAN, that the ’s case was statute barred.

The judge also disagreed with the ’s argument made through its counsel Mr Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa SAN, that the (INEC) cannot transfer a voter’s registration details.

Abiru won the last December 5 senatorial bye-election by a landslide, polling 89,204 votes against the PDP’s Ademola Gbadamosi, who polled 11,257 votes.

The APC chieftain has since been sworn into office.
