Ondo guber: APC aspirant, Ibrahim, sues INEC, Aiyedatiwa

Senator Jimoh Ibrahim, ahead of the Ondo State governorship election, took his grievances to the Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking to invalidate the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election held in the state on April 20th.

Senator Ibrahim is urging the court to void the nomination of the incumbent governor of the state, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, as the flag-bearer of the party for the gubernatorial contest billed for November 16.

Cited as defendants in the suit are the APC, Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The plaintiff, who represents Ondo South Senatorial District in the Senate, alleged that the primary election that produced Aiyedatiwa as the candidate of the APC for the governorship election, was fraught with irregularities.

The plaintiff, through his team of lawyers, led by Chris Uche, maintained that the party acted in breach of sections 221, and 228 of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, as well as section 84 of the Electoral Act, 2022
