A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed the nomination of Governorr Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola and his deputy governorship candidate, Benedict Alabi, as candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last election.
The court also held that Governor Mai Mala Buni acted in contravention of the provision of Section 183 of the constitution when he held dual executive positions as the Governor of Yobe and the APC caretaker committee.
The PDP had filed the suit on 7th April 2022, through its counsel, Kehinde Ogunwumiju (SAN), challenging the nomination and sponsorship of Governor Oyetola and his deputy as the duly nominated APC candidates.
Governor Gboyega Oyetola’s counsel, Kunle Adegoke (SAN), however, contended that the PDP lacked the locus standi to commence the action and that the suit was statute-barred.
But Ogunwumiju submitted that the suit was rightly commenced the suit under Section 285(14) (c) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended).
