Press Release: Jimoh Ibrahim’s Victory At Court; Democracy, Judiciary Is Working – PDP

Ondo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) wish to
congratulate the good people of our Sunshine State for witnessing,
today the 14th of October, 2016 a victory for democracy, the triumph of
truth over falsehood, Godliness over godfatherism and most importantly,
the sweet beginning of a new dawn of development and good governance
across the state. 


We also congratulate the authentic chairman of our great party in the state, Prince Poroye Biyi for his doggedness, his nonresistant fighting spirit and his
stronghold to the tenet and dictate of the Almighty God in achieving
this historic fate; a case of a little David killing the giant Goliath.

We congratulate our ever vibrant and goal getting candidate,
Chief (Dr.) Jimoh Ibrahim (CFR) for remaining steadfast and strong will
in defending the people’s mandate freely given to him by over seven
hundred delegates of our party at the primary held on the 29
ofSeptember, 2016.

And to all our elders, leaders, members, loyalists, well-wishers
and the good people of Ondo State in keep faith with our party PDP, we
thank you and solicit your support for our candidate in the forthcoming
Governorship election for us to consolidate today’s victory when our
candidate shall be elected the governor of the state.

We salute our Judiciary, the last hope of common man, for
enhancing our democracy, and rekindle our hope for better Nigeria
through the instrumentality of law by correcting the wrong done by the
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), where Mr. Eyitayo
Jegede was erroneously listed as PDP candidate in place of the rightful
person, Barrister Jimoh Ibrahim (CFR).

As we have always been saying that as a political party and law
abiding individuals, we believe in the court of law and the goodwill of
the people of Ondo State not to result in violence or any act capable of
undermining our integrity as citizens of Nigeria; but to always act in
the best interest of our people, our state, Ondo and dear country

It was a great joy for us that the court has ordered that “INEC
shall accept for the conduct of Ondo state election only the nomination
of Jimoh Ibrahim for Ondo state election for PDP.”

The presiding Judge of Federal High Court, Abuja, Justice Abang
when delivering the judgment that authenticated the candidacy of Dr.
Jimoh Ibrahim for PDP in the Septemeber 26  2016 Ondo State Governorship
Election said; “I held a while ago there is no application in the court
file brought to my attention, and while going through the court record I
found in the court file a counter affidavit of the second respondent
INEC dated Oct 12, 2016.

“It is, therefore, mean that INEC did not challenge the prayers
of the judgment creditors. INEC is bound to accept the Nomination of the
creditors. I so hold.

“INEC counsel did not inform the court on the June 29th, 2016 the
day of the judgment of any other judgment that set aside or altered
this judgment. To do otherwise than publish the name of the creditor’s
candidate will be unlawful,” Justice Abang ruled.

We, therefore, urge the people of our Sunshine state to
diligently await the homecoming of our candidate and the man God Himself
has ordained and appointed as the next governor of the state, where he
shall visit every unit, ward and local government in an unprecedented
campaign trail, preaching message of love, oneness, selfless service,
developmental strides, human and infrastructural development, wealth
creation, educational growth, economy buoyancy and giant stride in
Agriculture. Congratulations, Sun shiners.
