Court Dismisses Suit Against Rotimi Akeredolu, Says Case Is Statute Barred by Kwanza: 11:22am On Jan 13
The Federal High Court Abuja has dismissed a suit challenging the validity of the primary election that produced Rotimi Akeredolu as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in the last governorship election.

Presiding judge justice Iyang Ekwo in a judgment held that the suit instituted by Olajumoke Anifowose was statued barred having been filed outside the 14 days allowed by law for a pre-election matter.

Mrs Anifowose in the suit filed on her behalf by her counsel Adesina Oke, contended that section 87 of the electoral Act and article 20 of the APC Constitution were violated in the primary election by the state executive committee and local government committee that conducted the election.

The plaintiffs had prayed the court for an order declaring the primary election as invalid and to bar INEC from recognizing governor Akeredolu as the governorship candidate.

She also prayed the court to stop the APC from submitting Mr Akeredolu name as it’s governorship candidate.

The court upheld the preliminary hearing objections by the governor and APC , who claimed the suit was grossly Incompetent.

Justice Ekwo noted that the governor was nominated by APC on July 20th and the plaintiffs filed the suit on July 29th which fell within 14 days required by law, but the suit became incompetent due to withdrawal of the initial originating summons and its substitution on August 20th.
