Mr. Ibrahim in a statement released shortly after the judgement said he is certain of getting justice at the Supreme Court saying the incumbent governor, Olusegun Mimiko paid for the judgment with the state treasury.
His statement below:
I have read the decision of the Court of Appeal delivered today. We have nothing to lose as the Supreme Court seat on the same case tomorrow. We shall get justice at the Supreme Court and if PDP wins Saturday election we shall have our four years mandate to rule Ondo State.
Let me advise you not to abuse anyone or fight over this one day ruling, which was paid for from the state treasury
Mimiko will not succeed himself with Jegede this is too sure.
We continue with our work and remain in our great party PDP.
I love the great people of Ondo state and i thank you all for continuous support
