100 aspirants drag Oshiomhole, Ondo APC, INEC to court over primaries


One hundred aggrieved aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have dragged Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the party, to the federal high court, Akure over the primary elections in Ondo state.

The house of representatives and state assembly aspirants were led by Kenneth Olawale, former speaker of the state house of assembly.

Other defendants in the suit are the APC, Babatunde Ogala, the party’s national legal adviser, Ade Adetimehin, Ondo APC chairman, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Through their counsel, Wale Omotoso, they asked the court to declare that the ruling APC does not have candidates for the national and state assembly elections in the state.

They said the APC violated the 2010 Electoral Act and the constitution of the country by presenting candidates for the forthcoming elections without the conduct of party primaries.
