Dr Jimoh Ibrahim, senator representing the people of Ondo south at the national assembly in Abuja has withdrawn his suit challenging the emergence of Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a letter made available to newsmen and obtained by Precision Online Newspaper on Tuesday, Senator Ibrahim noted that the case with suit No FHC/ABJ/CS/588/2024 was withdrawn after the intervention from President Bola Tinubu.

The businessman turned politician had approached the court to challenge the outcome of the APC direct primary election that produced Governor Aiyedatiwa as the party’s candidate in April, 2024.

He had alleged that the process was “rigged” in favour of the sitting Governor.

The letter read;

“The suit is now withdrawn due to the intervention of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR. The President called me, had a meeting with me, and assured me that he will as the leader of the party improve on internal democracy within our party, and i will need to withdraw the case to enable him to chart a way forward. The Governor of Ondo state Lucky Aiyedatiwa earlier visited my Asokoro residence for several hours after another unsuccessful visit to my hotel room in Akure

“I cannot disobey the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria because the issue am fighting for is not personal. It is simply to improve internal democracy to which the President has promised Improvement. My respect for the President is absolute!

“Let me use this opportunity to thank Mr. President for the words of wisdom and encouragement during my meeting with him which lasted over one hour and his various interactions with me on the telephone during which he emphasized his commitment to internal democracy over and over again. Thank you, Mr. President,” Ibrahim said.
