The Court of Appeal, sitting in Abuja, on Friday ruled against Oladipupo Adebutu’s nomination as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State.

The Appeal Court in its ruling set aside an earlier judgement of the Federal High Court.

A three-member panel of the Appeal Court on Friday faulted Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja (now retired) for declining jurisdiction to entertain a suit filed by Jimi Adebisi Lawal.

Lawal had challenged PDP’s utilisation of a delegates’ list against the list of delegates who were elected at the ward congresses for the conduct of the May 25, 2022, governorship primary election.

Justice Biobele Georgewill, delivering the lead judgement on Friday,l ruled that the Federal High Court has jurisdiction over the case as it is pre-election related.
