Jimoh Ibrahim Heads To The Supreme Court

By Ikenga Chronicles November 23, 2016

Grossly dissatisfied with the ruling of the Court of Appeal which set aside the judgment of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja, Ibrahim Jimoh, the Ondo State gubernatorial candidate of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the Peoples
Democratic Party(PDP) said he is heading to Supreme Court to obtain justice.

He stated this shortly after the Appeal Court Judgement. He said there was no way the incumbent Governor of the state, Olusegun Mimiko, would succeed himself by planting his stooge, Eyitayo Jegede as his successor.

Recall that the court has ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) to remove Jimoh’s name as the candidate of the PDP in Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State.

His statement reads in part,

“I have read the decision of the Court of Appeal delivered today [Wednesday]. We have nothing to lose, as the Supreme Court sits on the same case tomorrow.”

“We shall get justice at the Supreme Court and if PDP wins Saturday’s election, we shall have our four-year mandate to rule Ondo State.”

“Let me advise you not to abuse anyone or fight over this one day ruling. 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.”
