Ogun PDP: Court Dismisses Lawal’s Suit Against Adebutu

The Federal High Court, Abuja,  dismissed a suit filed by Mr Jimi Adebisi-Lawal, a candidate of the PDP against Mr Oladipupo Adebutu, with respect to the Ogun PDP governorship ticket.

Lawal and Adebutu are both claiming to be the governorship candidate of the party for the 2023 governorship election in the state.

Delivering  Judgment, Justice Inyang Ekwo held that he did not see any concrete evidence by Lawal to support his claim that an unlawful delegate list was used by the PDP to conduct the April 30, ward congress in Ogun.

The judge said that the plaintiff, by filing the suit was only playing the  role of a spoiler as the suit was a product of an afterthought.

“I have no reason to say that the primary election was invalid, null and void.

“Upon reviewing  the evidence, I find that the plaintiff attempted to use a further affidavit to amend his originating summons.

“The case of the plaintiff has been debunked by exhibits of the defendants.
