Akeredolu's Emergence as Governor of Ondo Threatened as Tinubu's Ally Wins in Court

Olusegun Abraham who was the anointed candidate of a former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu during the APC Ondo primaries has scaled a hurdle in stopping Akeredolu through judicial means.

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday, cleared the way for a suit challenging the emergence of Ondo State Governor-elect, Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the recently concluded governorship election in Ondo State.
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, in a ruling, dismissed the notice of preliminary objection challenging the competence of the suit, which was filed by Akeredolu’s co-aspirant in the APC’s primary, Olusegun Abraham according to the Punch.
The judge dismissed Akeredolu’s objection anchored on the ground that he was not properly served with the court processes. The judge said the argument was without merit.
Justice Dimgba, after dismissing Akeredolu’s objection on Friday, adjourned till February 2, 2017 for the hearing of the substantive suit.
The suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/788/2016 was filed by Abraham through his lawyer, Prof. Yemi Akinseye-George (SAN).
The plaintiff’s suit is, among others, challenging the competence of the last APC’s governorship primary election in Ondo State held on September 3 this year.
The plaintiff, who raised eight questions for determination, is praying the court to, among others, declare that the primary was held in violation of provisions of the APC’s Electoral Guidelines for Governorship Primary Election 2014.
He said the primary also flouted the party’s constitution and was therefore invalid and incapable of validly producing Akeredolu as a candidate. He also seeks an order setting aside the primary for alleged non-compliance with the provisions of the party’s primary election guidelines and constitution.
Abraham, who emerged second in the primary, equally asked the court to set aside the purported submission of Akeredolu’s name to INEC by Odigie-Oyegun and the electoral body’s acceptance of the name as the APC’s candidate for the forthcoming governorship election.
