Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has promised to obey the judgement of the Court of Appeal, which asked it to remove the name of Mr Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Saturday governorship election in Ondo State.
The court ruled today on the matter following a directive yesterday by the Supreme Court that it should go on deliver judgement on the case.
After the Appeal Court’s judgement today, the electoral umpire pledged to do as directed by the court.
INEC said it would replace Mr Jomoh’s name with that of Mr Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) as ordered by the appeal court.
But the commission stressed that it should be served the court order before Friday, pointing that when such judgment is served on it, it will immediately comply with it.
