2023: Court Affirms Adebutu As Rightful PDP Candidate
The Federal High Court on Thursday affirmed the candidacy of the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Ladi Adebutu.
Naija News gathered that the presiding Judge, Inyang Ekwo declared Adebutu as the lawful candidate of PDP.
Justice Ekwo in his ruling held that the plaintiff, Jimi Adebisi Lawal failed to prove that the PDP breached its laws in selecting its flagbearer for the March 11, 2023 governorship poll.
The judge ruled that Lawal failed to provide reliable and credible evidence to support his case of electoral malpractice.
Justice Ekwo accordingly dismissed the suit for being incompetent and lacking in merit.
