Jimoh Ibrahim, Ali Modu Sheriff lose in Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has struck out all the interlocutory appeals filed by the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Mr. Sheriff insists he is the authentic chairman of the PDP. However, a Court of Appeal in Abuja on Wednesday declared Ahmed Makarfi the authentic PDP leader.

Jimoh Ibrahim had hoped that Supreme Court would grant the appeals which would have returned him as the candidate of the party for Saturday’s governorship election.

Mr. Ibrahim, who was chosen as PDP candidate by the Ali Sheriff faction, lost out at the apex court. A 5-man panel led by the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria struck out his appeals.

Eyitayo Jegede of the Ahmed Makarfi faction remains authentic PDP candidate for Ondo election.

I prefer Jimoh for them. He will do better than others. At least he is not after the money from the state.
