Ogun PDP Gubernatorial Candidate Adebutu Seek Court Redress on Party Primaries
Sequel to the recent Court verdicts that pronounced the rerun of all the PDP primaries in Ogun State by Justice Oguntoyinbo of the Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta; the National body of our party in its wisdom decided to appeal the judgements and the appeal actions were immediately taken on Friday, 30th, September, 2022.
Due to the fact that the Federal High Court Judgements were served on INEC and as a law abiding institution, INEC therefore, needed to temporarily step down the publishing of our candidates pending the determination by the Appeal Court.
While we urge our teeming supporters to remain calm and determined as ever, we need to inform them and particularly the general public that we had also filed a Stay of Execution and appealed the two judgements respectively, but due to public holiday on Monday ,3rd October,2022 to mark the 62nd Independence Day Celebration,INEC was unable to receive the notice and act accordingly.
It is worthy of note, to inform the public that the party resolved to appeal the judgements due to many lacunas identified in the verdicts delivered which may continue to linger into other legal battles especially when the hands of the opposition are seriously and adamantly involved.
We thereby appeal to the public that there is no need for panic, they should remain steadfast in the bid to rescue Ogun State from the shackles and maladministration of APC in Ogun State
We are hopeful Justice would not only be done but served timely. We urge the Courts to expedite actions through accelerated hearing, so as to restore the hope of the good people of the State.
Once again, this is an attempt to temporarily distract our numerous supporters from the resoluteness and plans for the general election that will eventually lead to the resumption of PDP to power in Ogun State but we should remain undeterred.
