A Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State, on Monday adjourned ruling on the validity of the primary election that led to the emergence of Senator Ademola Adeleke as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to May 18.

The plaintiff, Omooba Dotun Babayemi, approached the court to challenge the validity of the March 8 primary election held at Osogbo city stadium where Adeleke was declared winner and governorship candidate of the party.

Represented by Yusuf Alli SAN, the plaintiff insisted that the primary election was conducted against the order of the court and it is null and void.

He said, “this court has the power to dismiss the illegal primary held at the stadium because any election conducted by the national body of a party as claimed by the defendants, contrary to the order of the court, is null and void.”


Counsel to the PDP, M. A. Atolagbe, said the plaintiff did not participate in the primary election conducted by the National Working Committee of the PDP, saying it is an abuse of the court to institute any suit to challenge the process.

He maintained that the court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the suit because the suut is pending before the appellate court.

Also, counsel to the 3rd defendant, Adeleke, Wole Jimi-Bada, urged the court to dismiss the suit for lacking in merit and running contrary to Section 84(14) of the Electoral Act.
