Supreme Court Throws out Jimoh Ibrahim, Ali Modu Sheriff’s Suit

By Ikenga Chronicles November 24, 2016

The Supreme Court has on Thursday thrown out the suit filed by the Ali Modu Sherrif faction of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), and the Business Mogul, Jimoh Ibrahim.

The five-man panel headed by the Acting Chief Justice of the Federation, Onnoghen Walter ruled that the Supreme Court could not hear the suit based on the initial arguments except the parties re-file it based on the ruling of the Court of Appeal on Tuesday.

Recall that Sheriff and Ibrahim are seeking their recognition as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party and the party’s governorship candidate for the Ondo State November 26, 2016 respectively.

On Wednesday, the Special Panel of the Court of Appeal threw out their suits seeking to invalidate the National chairmanship of Senator Ahmed Makarfi and governorship candidacy of Eyitayo Jegede.

But before that ruling, both Sheriff and Ibrahim had headed to the Supreme Court.
