Ondo Election: I am PDP candidate, nobody can stop me – Jimoh Ibrahim vows | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


In apparent defiance of an Appeal Court ruling that set aside the Justice Abang judgement that ordered INEC to publish Jimoh Ibrahim’s name as the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate for the November 26 election in Ondo State, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim has vowed to continue with his campaign.

The three-man panel of the appeal court led by Justice Ibrahim Saulawa, in a unanimous judgment delivered on Wednesday held that Justice Abang acted without jurisdiction when he made orders against those that were not parties ‎before him.

The appeal court also nullified the primary said to have been conducted by the Biyi Poroye-led state executive of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the party which produced Ibrahim as the governorship candidate of the party in the state.

According to a report by The Interview, the candidate of the Modu Sheriff faction of the PDP, Ibrahim, dismissed the ruling, saying “the judgment is very vague; it is nebulous and ambiguous.”

He added, “The court did not make a consequential order asking INEC to remove my name; so nobody can remove my name from the ballot. The judgment is very vague; it is nebulous and ambiguous. INEC cannot dare to remove my name.

“INEC will pay billions of naira in damages if it dares to do that. What will it be acting on? There is no consequential order. The order is empty; it’s an empty voyage of discovery!

“I’m continuing my campaign. Nobody can stop me.

“Yes. I’ll invite you to the victory party on Sunday, after the election.”

  2. Fucking fraudster Jimoh Ibrahim. You are a thief, we all know your mission to be a governor. You don failed woefully oooooo.

  3. People's money you and your cronies stole from the masses using NICON has made you mad.

  4. Is there any need for a consequential order when they court has said you are not the right candidate of the party? I think that would be not be needed. You can exercise your right of appeal but as it is now, your name can't be on the ballot as PDP candidate. Okpari. As a lawyer you should know that unless you are daft.
