BREAKING: PDP Ask INEC To Postpone Ondo Election






Nigeria’s main opposition party, PDP, has called for the postponement of the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State.

The party based its call on the non-conclusion of a court case that was to determine its rightful candidate for the election.
A Court of Appeal panel led by Justice Ibrahim Salauwa on Friday adjourned ruling indefinitely in an appeal filed by Eyitayo Jegede who seeks to be recognised as the PDP governorship candidate.
Mr. Jegede seeks to upturn a Federal High Court ruling that effectively declared Jimoh Ibrahim as the rightful PDP candidate.
While Mr. Jegede and incumbent governor Olusgeun Mimiko are members of the Ahmed Makarfi-led PDP, Mr. Ibrahim is of the Ali Sheriff-led faction.
Justice Salauwa had said that the decision to adjourn was taken in the face of a petition written against the panel to the Chief Justice of the Federation and Chairman of the National Judicial Council alleging acts of corruption, bias and breach of oaths of office amongst others.
Furthermore, the respondents had filed a motion at the Supreme Court in which the Justices of Court of Appeal Panel were named as co-respondents in their personal capacities.
The Appeal Court said it will only continue with the matter after the Supreme Court’s rulings expected to be heard on Tuesday.
