Update on Ondo Election: We Will Replace Jimoh Ibrahim’s with Jegede – INEC

Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, today said factional governorship candidate of the PDP in the Saturday’s Ondo election, Jimoh Ibrahim will be replaced with Eyitayo Jegede.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Chairman of the commission, Rotimi Oyekannmi, said the electoral umpire will obey the ruling of the Appeal court which set aside the Justice Okon Abang’s ruling that ordered the initial replacement of Jegede’s name with Ibrahim,
According to Oyekanmi, the ruling of the appellate court should be served on the commission before Friday. 
Oyekanmi said, “Yes, the judgment as we followed, it shows that we must replace the name of Ibrahim with that of Jegede.

“We will obey the judgment because this is an order coming from a superior court. We will abide by that decision.

“However, we will expect that the judgment be served on us before Friday to enable us comply. When we are served, we will comply immediately.

“But we are not going to shift the date of the election. We have passed that stage. The election is going to hold on Saturday, November 24 as scheduled.”
