A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to accept businessman, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim, as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the forthcoming governorship election.
Ibrahim had emerged candidate of the Ali Modu Sheriff led faction of the party late August.
The election is scheduled to hold on November 26 in Ondo State.
Justice Okon Abang gave the order for the enforcement of his earlier judgment delivered on June 29, 2016.
The ruling means that Eyitayo Jegede currently recognised by INEC as the governorship candidate will be dropped for Jimoh Ibrahim.
Ibrahim earlier in the week said unless there a divine intervention, economic recession in Nigeria may linger on for another 20 years.
The businessman stated this while delivering a speech at a book launch at the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU.
“With the current crude oil prices and current situation of the country, except there is a miracle that will chance the situation, we may be experiencing this recession for 20 years.
“Our Naira has lost its value and this is the worst recession I have seen in many years and nothing seems to be happening,” he said.
