Ogun PDP: Court of Appeal Rules in Favor Of Ladi Adebutu, Strikes Out Jimi Lawal’s request for fresh Primaries In Ogun


The Court of Appeal Abuja Division has today delivered a judgment granting the application of the appeal filed by Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu against the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abeokuta, delivered on September 27, 2022, which ordered a new governorship primary election.

It will be recalled that the appeal court in its session on Monday reserved decision on this application until today following arguments for and against the application by Adebutu’s two lawyers, Chief Chris Uche, SAN and Dr. Kemi Peinhero, SAN for Olabode & Co ( cohorts of Jimi LAWAL).

The arguments came after the court informed the session that Hon. Adebutu’s appeal had been adjudicated with appeal no. CA/IB/411A/2022 and with a motion to rely on the records previously compiled and transmitted by the national body of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in appeal no. CA/IB/411. /2022 was moved by Chief Uche to seek the court’s grant of the application.

Counsel for Olabode & co (Jimi Lawal) urged the court to dismiss the application because the application was incompetent according to him.

Delivering the court ruling on the application, Justice Folashade Ojo said the decision to allow the application by Hon. Oladipupo Adebutu was a unanimous decision by the three panelists, Justice Moore Adumein, Hon. Justice Folashade Ojo and Justice Yargata Nimpa.
