Ogun PDP crises: Court of Appeal Rules against fresh Primaries in Ogun

The Court of Appeal, Ibadan Division, on Monday, set aside a judgment of the Federal High Court, Abeokuta, Ogun State, ordering the conduct of a fresh primary by the Peoples Democratic Party.

Justice O. Oguntoyin had in a September 27 judgment ordered the State Executive Committee of the PDP to rerun the primary within 14 days in a suit filed by aggrieved members of the party working for a governorship aspirant, Jimi Lawal.

Delivering judgment in an appeal filed by the PDP, Justice Folasade Ojo declared the lower court was wrong in its judgment as only the National Working Committee of the PDP was vested with the power to conduct the primary.

The PDP in Ogun is split into three factions with three different candidates claiming to be the governorship candidate of the party.

However, the party’s headquarters in Abuja recognizes Ladi Adebutu as the governorship candidate of the party.
