The Court of Appeal will on Tuesday afternoon continue hearing in a case that will determine who candidate of the PDP in Saturday’s governorship election will be.

Jimoh Ibrahim and Eyitayo Jegede, chosen by two different factions of the party, seek to be the candidate with Mr. Ibrahim currently recognised by INEC.

According to Premium Times, the Court may also decide who is the PDP rightful candidate after hearing arguments from all parties.

Supreme Court ruling earlier in the day has ordered the lower court to continue hearing the matter.


The Supreme Court dismissed an application filed by a factional leader of the PDP in Ondo State, Biyi Poroye, who is of Mr. Ibrahim’s faction.

Mr. Poroye, a factional chairman of the PDP asked the court to determine the jurisdiction of a panel set up by the Appeal Court President, Zainab Bulkachuwa.
